But I'm guessing most people here (like myself) have done nothing of the sort, but perhaps (also like me) have some dubious incoming links from very old link exchanges and directory submissions, and others they don't know where they came from. So it's clearly both inaccurate and rather insulting to say that penguin 2 only applies if we 'have been hanging out in a lot of blackhat forums, trading different types of spamming package tips'.
I think you are right on the money and I am finding Matt Cutts' and Google's attitude to all of this quite offensive. The overriding impression is one of "Na na na na na na na! Serves you right @H!"
What is also distressing is Google's willingness to change the rules and to start penalising people for indulging in practises that were accepted throughout the industry, like having Exact Match Domains and also practises that they themselves previously recommended like using keywords in your anchor text.
