Blimey thats a long post!

Anyway, i think your wrong! Inbound links cannot hurt you, as Google (and the other search engines) cannot tell who initiated a link.

You correctly state that people could submit your site to unsavoury sites, yet do you really think these unsavoury sites would bother to remove your listing if you asked them? Of course not! Many directories are even automated to accept links, some may even be long abandoned and never maintained!

Feel free to test your theory with one of my sites!

Hi Ashley,

A few will certainly never hurt anyone, but an over saturation or Google bowling I believe can do some harm.

Some sites remove links, the sites linking to mine did.

It's just food for thought =-)
