Everyone hates it. I realised that a few years ago at a pubcon. Everyone whinged about it and I saw my opportunity. Now we have a nightshift and dayshift getting links. Like ryan just said, the most important job.
It saved a bit more time butstill wasn't worth it.
Try writing articles and submiting them to article directories. Include a bio at the end with a link back to your site.

Link in your Signature file does count as one One-way link to your website. but keep in mind don't just keep registering with forums, add signature and forget...
this will be stretching it too far....
What I find most frustrating is when webmasters/site owners overvalue their text link ads. Yesterday, a webmaster called me, claiming his site was the greatest thing since sliced bread. He had 400+ outbound links, and wanted $300 a month for a link!
Some webmasters have quoted me prices in the thousands of dollars.
Bottom line is it's difficult to buy something when a market price cannot be determined. Valuing a text link can be a real challenge.
