Do I Pinch Off Blooms on Broccoli Plants?

I have some early voluntary broccoli plants growing like gangbusters. It has started to have yellow blooms. I seem to remember that I need to cut these off. Is that correct?

Once they start to bolt, the flavor goes south on them. You can cut them off, but the crop from the plant will be poor. Here is some information on keeping them from bolting:
