"It seems that Google penalize only pages which contain outbound links exceeding a certain maximum number. Something around 100 though I´m not so sure of the exact limit yet, but I´m testing ;-). "
I'm thinking more a density thing.
I'm thinking it's more a matter of proportion of text to outgoing links. If you have a page with NOTHING but say 20 outgoing links, it is still going to be dumped. But a page which say has 20 paragraphs of text with one link per paragraph is fine.
So, sneeringly and ironically, scrapers with one line of description and an external link will be out, but those who copy entire paragraphs or who don't link at all, will still be in.
