A Man According to his Praise

To link or not to link: That is the question.

Mishlei/Proverbs Chapter 27 verse 21 reads like this:

A refining pot is for silver, and a crucible for gold, and a man according to his praises.

Rabbeinu Yonah explains that "One's character can be seen in the things he considers important enough to praise".

There is a somewhat difficult decision that must be made when owning a blog. Who gets a link and who doesn't?

There are many blogs which pertain to Orthodox Jewry yet they are critical in nature. Some written by orthodox bloggers and others not. I ask input from the readership whether they should be granted a link. On the one hand, It is easier to keep track of all that is going on in the jblogosphere if all bloggers are included, yet on the other hand, I don't want it assumed that the linked blogs are approved. Your comments are welcome.
