Welcome to alt.i.se. Never seen you here before... you extend your wings and

I think the need for an incoming link makes far more sense than submission.
Any decent-sized business or repsectable person will be able to earn a

will have a hard time persuading a friend (yeah, right!) or a
well-acclaimed company to set up a link.
