Digitalghost, I'm merely suggesting that "left hand/right hand" is merely a possible explanation for why Google apparently accepts ads from link brokers while Matt Cutts is preaching against bought links. That's a lot more reasonable than calling such a suggestion a "justification" of anything. As for the idea that only people who buy links should be able to participate in a discussion of paid links, that's ridiculous. However, if you think the forum should have that policy in the TOS, you can take it up with the moderators.
