As stated in the above emails, I could have been more diplomatic in my initial response to the link request but does anyone believe things would have been any different had I said: "Sorry but I have decided to decline your request for a link on TKDTutor.com" This would probably have led to a demand to know why I declined.
Here are the reasons for my decision: the site does not identify you and it does not explain what your organization is; it is basically a offer to join your unexplained organization for $30 for which one will receive a certificate and some unexplained benefits. If you purport to be reputable, legitimate national organization, your web site should be complete before you put it on the Internet." This would have probably triggered the same outrage.
Had I not responded at all, I may avoided the confrontation but this probably would have also triggered an outrage. You cannot reason with an unreasonable person.
