The act of moving swiftly through E2 using only softlinks to travel from node to node. Softlink Surfing is very amusing when you have run out of sensible things to do and just want some general amusement. (Just as is the case when you use the Random Node link.)
Softlink Surfing brings a new aspect to browsing E2. Sometimes you are confronted with tough descisions, and few softlinks to choose from! Sometimes you may even hit a dead end! In any case it is guaranteed that you will have an interesting and unpredictable journey. Of course if you wanted you could use softlink surfing to stick to the same topic... and that would be useful for 'browsing' a topic of interest. Of course theres little fun and excitement in that :)
And really, Softlink Surfing doesn't limit you much...afterall, we all know that you can always get to Breasts from anywhere on E2, via softlinks alone!
Oh and finally, softlink surfing doesnt create any new softlinks! So it decreses the everpresent problem of every node being linked to every other totally unrelated node!
