Indyank, I am not penalized. I've gotten the post-Penguin "no manual action" email.
I am also saying that you were affected by Penguin but for those backlinks which you described and Google misinterprets as planted or solicited links. To treat Penguin as a penalty or not is up to you and if you still feel you weren't affected by the backlink evaluation part of the penguin algo, you could continue to explore other reasons as you are the best judge.
I am not sure what you mean by the "no manual action" email. Are you talking about Google's response to your reconsideration request? "no manual action" email is sent only in response to such requests. But I am talking about the recent "unnatural links" warning notification that google sends out for individual suspect pages on the site.
