Hoi mates from near and far. The "add links" link, (formerly) available to all on the advertising links webpage, and in the cute little box here on the front page (as depicted), has proven to be too much fun for Russian and Israeli spammers. I once made the adding of ad-links available to anyone who fancied to add one, so that other advertising websites, for example, could add their sites without having to sign up as members (if they didn't want to). People used to email quite a lot (and some still do - please stop it) asking how to get a link listed, so I figured making the add links more obvious, and free for all to use, would be helpful.
Sadly, only the spammers caught on to this toy. Today there were 400 Russian links in the waiting to be approved queue indicating some clever bastard probably wrote a script that adds links here. I have better things to do with my days than to weed out spam. So these days we are back to the original setup, if want to add a link you have to be an adgrunt. Be logged in, only then will you be able to suggest a link. The link is still queued, and still looked over by an admin before it lands on the advertising links page.
So all ye adgrunts who have advertising portfolios, are creative recruiters/ headhunters, take pretty pictures, illustrate, design fonts or blog, etc and so on - don't forget to add your link. The resource is for you, not for spammers. :)
