additionally, i am NOT cloaking anything right now.
Just feeding generated pages, so users and SEs see the saame thing.

Speaking as a fully rehabiliated, ex-cloaker who has been on the wagon for several years... You're busted! :)
Google has identified you as a cloaker and flagged your site. You will need to quit cloaking and submit a reinclusion request confessing your transgressions. (Either get better at cloaking or quit cloaking, or they will bust you again!) ;)
(hanging my head in shame) OK, I'm describing personal experiences from about two and a half years ago and it may not be accurate today...

What gave ya away is the changing content.

The content changing is exactly what i thought would ruin me!.... its ok.. on to better things.

Hmmm, just one tiny doubt itching inside.... :/
to a robot's eyes, what's the difference between a page with dinamic content for SE feed, like meweb.com/my-keyword.htm and a genuine page with changing content, say /my-daily-comment.htm?
I mean, pages are evolving things, we're supposed to be allowed to change their content. If the robot thinks a page change is a spam, what should be done?

Changing content is not a giveaway, but constantly changing content is. If the content changes every time the page is acessed, then it is a giveaway.

ok, i got that, thanks.
and what happens with explicit dinamic pages, say with .asp or .php extensions, changing content every time, that also counts as cloaking?
For example, i have a web, with a bar on the side, and everytime it presents a random joke from a DB. If you make 10 reloads in 10 secs, i assure you that the joke bit is going to be different every time. but about 80% of the content will be the same.
does this count as spam for our beloved Gbot?

No. We're talking major content changes. SE's are smart enough to tell the difference.
