if Google is looking at bounces as a negative factor, then you would only be affected negatively for those irrelevant searches.
Exactly -thus the results on Google become progressively more relevant.
I am wondering if google is using bounce rate as an overall penalty from google search data
I don't think of this as a penalty -merely one of the likely factors Google would use to increase search relevance.
