Not really, basically the program helped you find and police link exchanges. If I remove the directory it will tell other users of the program that I am not reciprocating and that will cause the eventual loss of those links.
The thing is, I have had that entire directory blocked by robots.txt for over a year which is where my reciprocal links back are.
So I guess the REAL question is, with that entire directory blocked from bots, it should not appear as if I am linking back to the spammy sites. So why not just keep it?
