1) We have ssi ads that kick in. This means our content changes but the page file date remains the same. Could this have been misinterpreted as cloaking?
All my personal sites use SSI, some pulling in script produced random text and ads - no problems seen so far
2) A strange site has created about 40 pages of search results, all listed at google, with 20 links per page pointing at our site.
Seems a possible cause. Google say you can't be hurt by the actions of others, but some folk think otherwise. Succesful 'enemy action' has been reported. Of course, it depends on whether you believe Google or the reports, but it sounds like someone was out to get you.
