A while back I asked 'Have infographics jumped the shark?'.

At the time I was complaining primarily about how well they convey information and how easy they are to check since they lack hyperlinks. I alluded to some pretty strange linkbait. Then we, like a lot of other sites, got caught in the pure linkbait play Bikes Will Save You and the Planet (Infographic) which is still up for some reason. Chris responded to this with his post On Bike Infographics & Link Marketing, where he noted that even a good infographic can make us feel "icky" if they are linkbait.
