Many wordpress users out there removing their outbound links to wordpress from their website/blog. That’s fine, especially if they use a paid server for their paid domain. I don’t think that wordpress has a ToS (Term of Service) for removing their credit from users’ website/blog. Correct me if I am wrong. But for me, I just want to keep wordpress linkS on my blog, as a credit to wordpress that have been creating a nice free Content Management System (CMS). Yeah that’s right, the line in the footer that saying “Proudly powered by WordPress”. I am proud and happy using wordpress as my CMS.
