Did Matt Cutts just say link buying is ok ?

Ok Matt was asked about Nofollow recently at the Domain RoundTable 2008, and If I’m reading this write, what Jaan posted

Matt says nofollow is a "very simple thing". Nofollow link doesn't flow page rank, doesn't flow anchor text. Link level to say "I trust this link but I don't trust this link". You don't want to flow page rank through them if you don't trust them. Real business 3-4% of your links will be stale, don't worry don't need nofollow. If check them at some point, willing to vouch for them, at some point checked them for quality, then don't need to worry about nofollow. If just a domain directory, use no follow.. it is a matter of how much due diligence you put in."

so Matt is it ok to email webmasters and say,

Dear Webmaster,

recently Matt Cutts said on Links “Nofollow link doesn't flow page rank, doesn't flow anchor text. Link level to say "I trust this link but I don't trust this link"

So what I would like to offer you is, you to look at my site “———-” and you make the judgement call, I would be willing to pay you either away for the link “link information” or even the the “link information with Nofollow”, Obviously I feel that a link on your site will help me either way, obviously this “link information with Nofollow” means you don’t trust the site, and I would by surprised if you took me up on my offer lol..
regards Dave

Of course you would get your arse banned if caught but at least you could prove that you did at least try and follow the rules ;)
