From my experience G is pretty cool with getting you back to where you were if you tried something crazy that is not totally just a blatant spam attempt on your own site. Rather then the people at G but the algo of course. It tends to forget the past and only considers the current as long as you didn't hardcore spam something. I have one off thread comment as far as linking to other sites. G likes this as long as they don't link back to you. I have never understood why G likes one way links better than reciprocal links. Well I guess it's harder to get one way links but still. It's pretty hard to get quality recip links. It's the web right. sites are supposed to link to each other not just one way.
