I must not understand the concept of a naked link. Doesn't my headline, as well as the link itself tell all? Should I have included the score? I don't want to be noncompliant.

If I understand, a "Naked Link" is one where the posted headline is the actual link (URL.). The way I investigate naked links (I do thousands every day) is to copy the headline and paste it in my naked link detector (browser). So if the headline opens the intended page we have a naked link which I report to the "Naked Link" police.
My test reveals that yours is not a naked link. Feel free to remove the bar from your front door.
I understand that REW has the authority to over ride this decision.

I was rather proud of the alliterative riff bewteen my headline and the actual link.

When one is retired, he sometimes will find himself reduced to seeking pleasure in these meaningless trifles.

a. nice alliteration by the link writer.
b. interesting results when one searches for "naked link" in Google.
c. Naked Link would be a good name for a band.

One post. 16 responses (so far), only one has to do with the thread topic, and that's by the author attempting to get on topic.Not "back on topic" 'cause he never was. This has got to be some kind of record.

Of course you realize your post isn't on topic either - and neither is this one.

Just trying to add to the record. It's hard to pass by a chance for everlasting fame.
