Over at Web Voice there's some discussion of an issue that Y! Finance and Y! News deal with constantly--how much "related" information about a keyword, topic, story, person, etc. is too much? Does it belong in-line or off to the side? Should the user be able to customize it? How?

This is interesting to me because I was supposed to be working on a project for Y! Finanace that changes the way we handle those in-story links you see on biz.yahoo.com news articles and commentary. But since I'm moving to Y! Search, I won't have time to work on that project. Too bad.

Anyone have strong preferences on this? Seen a site that does it exceptionally well or poorly?
