I did'nt use winetools for quite a while now, but it was a great tool to get a 
newbie up and running with wine back then. If it hurts us more than it helps 
today, then we should take some action. But could we perhaps get in contact 
with Joachim von Thadden before we remove the link? He has put a lot of 
effort in winetools and he's a great wine advocate (He wrote a multi page 
technical article on wine for c't magazine a few months ago, which is one of 
the big computer publications here in germany. This article was based on 
winetools, but also did a lot of advertising for CodeWeavers and Wine in 
general). In my opinion he deserves some respect from our part. We should 
give him a chance to fix the problems with winetools before we silently 
remove the link.
