Is this some sort of art scam?

I just got this email:
I represent the website which at this moment is building a high quality Visual Art Online Resource.
And I'd like to inform you that we have recently created referential link to your website http://tanukitsune1.deviantart.com/ as to very valuable site for our online users.
You can see it on the page http://www.gallery-worldwide.com/temporary/link/209/digital_more.html#175006
Right now, the link is in our temporary directory 'Digital Art'.
And I need your feedback and permission to move it from that temporary private directory to our permanent and public one.
If the directory is not good enough for your site, check out our link directories -http://www.gallery-worldwide.com/links.html. And let me know about better choice.
Send your feedback and permission to email@example.com
Please, consider also creating reciprocal link to us.
Title: Fine Art Gallery
(if you need more details visit page http://www.gallery-worldwide.com/link_to_us.html)
This doesn't seems like a scam, but how on Earth did I get on a worldwide gallery? I'm a nobody!
Hm, it seems a little suspicious to me. :/
He's one of them! Don't trust him! :P
I am quite positive my work will never be in any art galleries.
Ohho! A sleeper agent is you!
I do sleep a bit too much (or, rather, at wrong times of day), but I'm not an agent.
I run things from the shadows, and let others do the work.
Look at least a bit suspicious. I suggest you ask others in Deviantart if they have received similar messages.
Original pixel art, especially animated, is really a unique and completely modern new artform. The art world sometimes gushes over things like this.
I mean, when you think about it:
- There is no formal training for this type of work.
- It can only exist on this media of 0s and 1s. It's intangible outside of this because its animated.
- It's distributed through the internet, an also relative new media for showing art.
You're work pretty much screams "FINE ART", if you know how to talk about it right. :D
After visiting their site it seems it's kinda like Deviant Art...
They just want to exchange links.... Not to join them... Anybody can join whenever they want... for a price....
Anybody can join whenever they want... for a price....
The soul of your first-born child? O_o
I got this as well, and not only am I a nobody, I'm not an artist and haven't posted to my blog in weeks.
