I have received some of those emails, requesting that I remove perfectly natural links (unpaid, unsolicited) from my sites. They are usually worded something like, "it has come to our attention that you are linking to our site... blah blah blah... which is causing financial losses due to ranking demotions... blah blah blah." I figure, if they have suffered a penalty for bad linking, then perhaps I am linking to a bad neighborhood and I'm better off removing the link. Who knows. I just remove the link and politely tell them to go away.
