An Example of Pointless Linking

Here is an link exchange request example that fails to meet at least three of my link exchange criteria:

1. Gambling site -- irrelevant to my subject matter
2. Excessive number of links on the page
3. Excessive number of link pages in this category

And this criterion which is implicit:

4. No realistic chance of ever getting any PR.

According to my count, this site has more than 30,000 outbound links pointing at "partners". Who knows how many have reciprocated. Maybe 25%??? Even that would be 7,500 inbound links.

None of these pages — including the home page — have any PR.

So what's the point?

Is it possible this webmaster is just gathering email addresses?
