brinked: Nobody can say for certain what can or can not get you penalized
I can say for certain what can be done. You are right I can't say what can't be done. We have thought things were impossible in the past but are now possible. I do know for a fact that Google can penalize a site from just backlinks. I have been doing SEO for over 6 years and I have never read an SEO book. I have learned from experience and talking to other SEO's at conferences and backroom IRC chats.
