It's not a bad thing. at all. misinformation reins on [_] once again.

There is an argument you don't need a home button at all. Just your
logo linked to the index page, with Alt text in it of course,
containing a few handy concise keyword phrases. for a good example of this. does well on
hundreds of thousands and SERPS results. See how they have matched
links and themes right at the top of the page.

Read googles webmaster start up SEO guide. It tells you everything and
clears all this up.
