Dear Wordpress,

The links added to posts via your "related posts" feature are rarely (perhaps never?) actually "related" to the post you add the links from. This harmful in two ways: one, every time I click one of those links thinking the page author had more information for me to read (like Greg Linden's blog, which often has great related links), I find unuseful content and it frustrates me. Two, and maybe more worrying for you, you're training me to ignore those links; if you ever do improve the quality of the matching system later I'll never discover it.
