If you own widgets.com and all .net, .org. .ca, etc. and you forward them all to .com - that's ok.

What if your also own wigdets.com, wigets.com, bluewidgets.com, wigets.net, plus many others.

and you forward all those domains to widgets.com
will you ever get penaltized for forwarding too many domains? Is there a limit?

The only trouble I can conceive of is if you start driving traffic directly to one of those secondary domain names. Too much of that could look like somthing funny is going on. I know of companies that 301 redirect over 1,000 domains to one core domain with no problems. Google only ever indexes the core domain, the rest are either owned for brandname protection or type-in traffic.
