@Aletta - I have heard that google will "knock you down" if you have too many links coming from bad sites (link farms). I have heard stories (not knowing if they are real or not, but no reason to believe they are false) that people have had to scrap their sites because too many low-quality sites were linking to them and google penalized them for it.
Have you heard, or experienced such a thing?
Anyway, you would think that you could add a blacklist to your robot.txt file that would tell google that you don't authorize certain sites to link to you. Since it would be difficult to get the site owner to remove the link from their site.
