Humans.txt a footer link alternative

I recently decided to get some consistency in the footer links I was adding to the website I designed and coded. I wasn’t sure whether to use “designed by”, “built by”, “developed by” etc. so I created a post on forrst.com asking fellow designers and developers their thoughts. I was expecting a general consensus and I got quite the opposite. Most comments advised against using the links and there was some real snobbery about the use of footer links.
