Now, if you're talking about adding TWO outbound links... One to my specified directory and the other to my links page, that's a different story.
In that case, as a webmaster, I would say go ahead and do it.

martinibuster you got it right, that's what I mean. So, from the home page or another page and is it considered spam to the SE? The anchor text to the other links page would be a "." (period) buried somewhere not obvious. The agreed to link to the other home page would be on my actual link page. No funny business going on. Just think doing this will help both sites (and other links on it).
I would advise to just leave the link there for a month or two, to make sure it gets followed and spidered. Once it's spidered, that's that.
But you know, these things all get spidered eventually, and I stopped doing contortions worrying about it. It's a lot more fruitful to expend the same amount of energy looking for more links.
Nowadays, I link up and that's that.
