SEO Ethics Are In The Eye Of The Beholder

True story. I was sitting at one of my computers, a bit flustered because I was trying to solve yet another CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) browser incompatibility, and I received the following email:

I would be pleased to buy some text links on your website. Let me know if you are interested so we can proceed for further negotiations. I can really offer you a smart and competitive package.

Smart and competitive package? This guy had to be kidding me, right? Anyone who knows me can reasonably assume that I will respond to most search engine optimization (SEO) and/or link buying pitches with one of the following responses: (a) Hit the delete button, or (b) Report search engine spam. Of course, the delete-button decision would have been more efficient. But I was in one of my moods. I really hate CSS browser incompatibilities.
