Imagine one day coming across a brilliant new writeup. It's factually interesting, funny, insightful... whatever floats your boat
There is one flaw; it doesn't have any softlink
s. Obviously the writer either hasn't read The Perfect Node
or doesn't want to impress.
As this is a new writeup it doesn't even yet boast any muddy footprints
marking the passage of sleepless noders' seemingly aimless reading and searching, reading and searching.
The benevolent softlinker, on seeing this helpless node,
rescues it by adding an abundance of meaningful softlinks. The original noder, thoughtless enough to have overlooked such
an important part of noding as the adding of softlinks, should be very grateful to the anonymous softlinker who
is improving the offending node without praise or reward. To rescue a floundering newbie's
linkless writeup with great softlinks is a true Softlink Rescue.
