why not nofollow and remove all risk
If you didn't believe it was a decent site, you wouldn't be linking to it.
I have gone from sitewides to a single page that lists the sites (with a link to that page in the footer).
if you created a useful widget with a link like "powered by netmeg
I think it all boils down to the level of authority of a site as to what you can and cannot do

It seems to me that the purpose and advised use of these things has been ... uhh ... "evolving" at best.
Has there EVER been ANY statement from an actual google search team / spam team member saying that a nofollow link will harm a site - either the destination site or the linking out site?
