---- Google WMT notice of detected unnatural links. So, what now?

This is interesting:
We've reviewed your site and we still see links to your site that violate our quality guidelines.
(emphasis mine) Do other people receive such definitive responses to recon. requests sent right after the "unnatural links" notice?
I guess, what I'm trying to get at is this: if the response you get is non-specific - "one or more pages ... still violate" - does it mean that the unnatural links were fixed but there is still a different penalty applied?
There seems to be at least four types of responses (all templates, I'm sure but a human may have to look at the site to pick the right template)
Positive: "we have revoked this manual action."
Negative specific: "We've reviewed your site and we still see links to your site that violate..."
Negative generic: "some or all of your pages still violate..."
Ambivalent: "We've now reviewed your site ... If we don't find any problems ..."
Can we have a show of hands on which responses people are getting (presumably after taking steps to rectify the "unnatural links"). Is there another response I missed?
