Ashok, Dan, 

my point goes beyond. I think that by suppressing the link, we not only 
interfere with the speech of a person, but with the functionality of the web. 
So the damage goes beyond the freedom of speech for the person linking or 
expressing an opinion by linking. Imagine e.g. a namespace with a 
controversial namespace in it.
