I appreciate the fact that you are trying to help and are making suggestions in order for me not to shoot myself in the foot.
"Therefore you should wait at least two weeks (?) after deleting before disavowing."
"While it's really important for the web-spam team when processing the reconsideration request to see significant effort put into resolving the issue at its roots (on those external sites), it can also be a good practice to at least have those sites listed in your disavow file in the meantime (use them in parallel, don't get bogged down with contact requests before adding them)."
I am assuming this means it is ok / recommended to add links to the disavow file even before the link had been removed (or within a short time period after it has been removed).
"Google has told several times very clearly, that a RR is ONLY suitable with manual penalties, not algo penalties."
That may be.
On the other hand, the cases where I have read about a success from using the disavow tool for sites affected by Penguin were sites that filed a reconsideration, despite NOT having a manual penalty.
The people who experienced this theorized that the disavow file only has an affect on rankings either 1) during a Penguin refresh, or 2) after filing a reconsideration request.
One person who claims to have experienced success using the disavow said it was during a PANDA (not Penguin) refresh.
