How does everyone feel about links from indirectly related sites?
What's the purpose of the link? If it generates traffic, then that's a very good thing. In most cases, they're there just for the sake of link juice.
I believe that many of us avoid links because of the possible penalty Google might impose. I know that perception costs me a lot of money. I seem to get more offers to buy links than exchange them. Most of the offers are quite low - $50 for a "permanent" link, while others have offered as much as $250 per month (still too low). Even if someone were to hit my asking price, I still wouldn't provide the link.
Ironically, if you have useful content, you'll get a link for free.
