For those of you who are also having problems with illegal links vs. GOOGLE, there is good news.
If you take the time to "no follow" your links, Google will retest your site for compliance if you ask them (nicely). Just explain what you did to rectify the problem, in a few days you can also get a clean bill of health.
I am no longer a felon and can blog in the sun again!!!
Just thought I should finish what I started and let you know.
Have a GREAT day!!
