New site, nice list:
It is an honor to make a list like this but considering TONMO's specialty nature, it is OUTSTANDING!!!!
This is spam. It's a way to get legitimate sites like TONMO to link to sketchy ones trying to boost their SEO ranking for "online education" programs. It's a never-ending battle.

A pretty soft touch for real spam, I thought. Looking through the site, I can't find anything bad. Yes, they are trying to boost traffic, but people trying to build sites *do* want to do that, so that's necessarily a sign of spam. I don't disagree that it's a bit suspicious. This will be a good test... let's check back on this periodically, and see what comes of it!
