I had an honest 3 page minisite offering good travel related content and links but Google guys manually gave it the -60 penalty. It makes me wonder would it have been banned if the links were not affiliate links. The serps in my country are full of sites that only have links to travel agencies. If cloaking my links helps then I'll do it but affiliate business in a big part of the Internet and what G is doing (checking sites and counting how many outbound links are affiliate links) is sad.
