My opinion is,
I dont fell comfortable taking away the signatures because this could be a reason google see it as a negative seo, (have ever received any warning).
I dont do things only for google, and google should not make the rules, however as google is the most important site to get visitors....
On the other hand I have 84 natural links from an informative site, I checked the site a bit worried as it may look like bought links.
The site in question have a sidemenu and the link to mysite among with some few more appears on all the pages, and as in menu, the amount increases.
I am not worried as these links goes to my swedish version wich is doing just fine.
