I wasn't referring to dynamically generated links like that. Which is why I 
said that I don't know of any such programs - but I'll bet you can find 
them. Rather, I meant SPECIFIC links to specific sites - albeit ones that 
are paid for the click-through. Content-based, and relevant to your subject.

Again, not quite what I had meant. What you describe, I would agree with 
your assessment.
