PAD, let's remove some links

I was reading that Google does not like a website when its link popularity raise to quickly. This make sense, but I could have never thought that Google could actually penalize a website for doing this.
For this reason I've just removed all the link to from and from

While doing this I realized that in some sections of the gallery everybody could add comments to the pictures, thus leaving the door open to comment spam bots. In fact after disabling this option, I had to remove over 10 thousand of spam comments (which didn't take long since I have direct access to the database).
