I did left an example on Telendro's blog yesterday -8 sitelinks- (sorry it's Spanish), but either no one saw it or nobody was surprised (no reply):

telendro.com.es/2007/10/17/sug ...

Just follow the links on my comment to see 2 examples(lazy?:

I'm seeing this just on one computer (but not only for one site), so it could a google test.

And as for disabling sitelinks I can see this for one of my customers. If anyone wants an screenshot please reply and I post a link (but there's already one screenshot on the blog)

I don't think these examples work. Maybe their visibility has something to do with your Google cookie or the data center.

All these examples work fine here... yet I really dislike the feature... its quite messy now.

I'm not seeing the 8 results either.

From the screenshot though, it looks messy.

Wonder how much the CTR increases with Google sitelinks... Anyone any idea?

I think Google should use plus boxes for the sitelinks. They occupy too much space and their use is sometimes questionable (not all sites have navigational links).

I think they are incredibly useful sometimes, and at most other times, I ignore them. Guess it's hard to tell for Google when they are relevant, but I suppose they check the click-through rates which convince them to keep them up...

These sitelinks have been appearing in many big name sites such as Engadget, BBC etc etc. I don't believe many sites will receive the privilege, but for those sites which have lots of sectioned content, this is great for users viewing the search results!

Well, my site got this undeserved privilege and it's not BBC or Engadget. Meanwhile I can see more than 4 sitelinks at google.co.uk (but it still doesn't work for every data center):
E.g.: google.co.uk/search?hl=en& ...

Well, google.com/search?q=live.com works

Another one that shows 8 links:

google.com/search?q=wealthtv.n ...
