Written by Bob McElwain

Well, it may be an old "twist," actually. But I only began seeing it this year. Likely I've been sucked in before, and never noticed. Butrepparttar reason for bringing it up now, is that I was hit by this "twist" four times last month. It goes like this.

Somebody writes a very good message explaining they've added a link to my site. And would like me to link to them. I get lots of these every month, and discard most immediately becauserepparttar 125050 presentation demonstrates it wouldn't be a good idea. I don't even have to visitrepparttar 125051 site to see it's so.

But these four, I did check out. For they were, as stated, well written. In each case, I found a very nicely annotated link to my site, just where I was invited to look.

Okay. Back torepparttar 125052 home page. Let's see ifrepparttar 125053 site looks okay. Yep. Not bad. At least some of my visitors would be interested. So sure, let's go for it.
