Why I remove at once all those links.
Plus of course, make sure to move the default from going live and having search engines come by to leave me alone.
Until the blog is ready of course, then change it back.
It's these little things that most webmasters using wordpress do not have a clue about.
I don't link back to WordPress since they don't need any more links, they should link to my blogs out of respect for my support of their platform (dofollow from their home page)! lol They could have a "user respect plugin" that builds links to their user base by sharing out their home page PR juice.
