I thought cforms had the option to disable "link love" but I've just 
checked and I can't see it. Maybe it was another plugin.

Personally, I think linking back to the author's site is ok *if* there's 
an option to disable it. On some sites it won't be appropriate, and so 
it should be easy to disable.

Why not code up as an option and send it to the plugin author, see if 
they'll include it?

Cheers - Callum.
