It looks like people who were using the "Personal Nodelet" to record a list of bookmarks on their private scratchpad have lost this ability (and may be adding these to their public scratchpad if they haven't been paying attention).
My idea for how to deal with this is to have the Personal Nodelet bottom links change from (with useless links for the sake of making it look the same):
To something like:
foo is cool
bar is cooler
except w/o the blank line (that I have because I'm not allowed to say <div align="right"> so I used <p align="right">).
