IMHO bigger problem is a lot of link exchange requests from low quality sites - not hiding anything, not using dirty tricks, just plain low quality/unattractive/not-related. But when quality site webmaster asks for link, it is mostly honest and good trade. I have quite a few good links from webmasters who approached me first. Is it possible that this depends on the niche you are at?
