Thanks for the reply. We are planning on making the database so that links have to continue to be approved by me before they show up. I currently have a small directory with a variety of related categories, and mostly just a few links per page. I ignore the many submissions that are off topic, but I am sometimes tempted to use opera so that when I check out a potential link, I don't see that little gray/white bar, and just look at whether the site is useful to my users or not.
Is there any quick way for a first time visitor to tell whether the gray/white pr is from just being new or from a penalty?
