there's no substitute for sending a real letter addressed to a specific person. sure, takes a bit more effort. But everytime I get a solicit from someone who obviously doesn't know a thing about my site or why it might be good for my users to see their link, i dump it immediately. And, more to the point of this thread, I find that I get much more response if I send a letter such as this.
