For the second time now I’ve received a sponsorship request from a Poker site. This poker site would like to pay us $500 in exchange for putting a link to their poker site on the metabrainz.org sponsors page. I’m certain that this is just a way for these sites to boost their Google PageRank — a marketing campaign of sorts. They obviously cannot expect much traffic from us (that page was visited less than 5000 times last month), and I doubt that anyone would click on that link.
MusicBrainz/MetaBrainz has nothing to do with Poker, but we could always use $500.
I’m at a loss what to do. What do you think we should do?
UPDATE: The feedback I’ve gotten has been mixed, but the comment from Chris DiBona of Google cinched it for me — no poker links on MusicBrainz/MetaBrainz.
