Change "Blogroll" back to "Links"

    I doubt 'Blogroll' could exist in an English dictionary.

    From an i18n pont of view, I could only translate it as 'Links' to other languages

    Definitely should be called Links - more descriptive and more open to interpretation.

    As of 2.5 it appears that it'll be changed back to links.

    Totally agree. "Blogroll" is jargon, and soon-to-be-dated jargon at that. Just call it what it is -- "Links".

    Frankly, I would like to see the word "blog" die altogether. A "blog" is essentially a type of CMS no matter how you slice it.

    Awesome, looks like they've seen the light with the advent of 2.5:

    Thanks to everyone for participating in this Idea. WordPress 2.5 now refers to "Links" and "Link Categories."
