Sandboxed - what limitations placed?

Firstly, there are plenty of discussions on whether the sandbox exists or not - let's not make this one of them ;)

For those who consider their site to be sandboxed what limitations (other than ranking) do you consider have been placed on your site?

e.g. 1. Outbound links from a sandboxed site do not increase the value of the site linked to.

2. Inbound links from other sites are ignored until you are released from the sandbox.

3. If you have purchased an expired domain in the hope of bypassing the sandbox does this only work if there are old links pointing to your site or does the single fact the domain itself is old cause you to rank.

4. When one of your sites is "released" do the other sites get released quicker (i.e. other sites with Whois info the same).

5. Do links from other sandboxed sites (as opposed to older sites) increase your sandboxed ranking (e.g. position 350 to position 250).

etc.

I look forward to hearing any theories or research you may have in this area. Yes, I am an avid "nay-sayer" to the whole sandbox thing but that is neither here nor there for this particular discussion.

Disclaimer - all following answers are my own experience/opinion, and should be taken as such, no more and no less.

1. "Outbound links from a sandboxed site do not increase the value of the site linked to" - not true

2. "Inbound links from other sites are ignored until you are released from the sandbox" - no, it's just their effect that is lessened

4. "When one of your sites is "released" do the other sites get released quicker (i.e. other sites with Whois info the same)." - sites with the same whois - not necessarily, sites that were created at the same time - a tentative yes.

3,5 - not sure.

6. Once a site is out of the sandbox there's still the possibility it may return there at some later point... (happened to me once with a site that was initially released from the sandbox May 2004).

4 is definitely NOT true in my experience. I've only seen 1 site come out from the sandbox, so far. Some others which are older, are still in there.
