is paying for a web directory link okay in Google's eyes?

I know they have a stand on paid links, but Ive heard that this doesnt apply to web directories where manual review of sites takes place. Can someone please confirm this, and provide me more information if necessary. Thanks in advance

Be careful. If what you are talking about is a link farm, then you will be penalized. Link farms are worthless sites that have nothing but unrelated links plastered on their pages. Links from worthless sites are worthless.
