I removed some links from one of my own sites and I dropped much further than the initial penalty. I maybe should have kept them but expect it's only a matter of time before google spots them and then I risk the whole process again. I just hope that the next penguin refresh will see me climbing a bit. New links that I am adding are having no effect so far either.
I don't have a chance in competing my SERP unless google penalises the dirty players that are dominating it. There is just no way to compete without doing something underhand to get there. This is not a level field.
