Whoring your PageRank

Okay, this has gone too far. Yesterday I received an e-mail from someone who wanted to buy some text links on my blog. I figured it was a humorous response to Google AdSense rejecting me.

No. He was serious.

I am interested in buying text link advertising promoting my internet pharmacy off of your website. The links would not have to be in a very prominent place on the website, as I am not looking for traffic from your site. I am looking to increase my PageRank in google.

(Emphasis mine.)

Does anyone else find this both amusing and disgusting at the same time?

On the other hand, I wonder what it was worth to him. :-)
