In that case how can we trust and believe the Google representative when he said in one of his videos that the backlinks shown on WMT would be enough?
Has no one received examples of links that "violate the Google quality guidelines" that are not in their backlinks in webmaster tools?I did get a sample of bad links at some point but I cannot recall if any or all of them were in the WMT list at the time. But that does not matter: the fact that you did get a sample is so rare and unique that adding yet another qualifier (asking "are they in your WMT?") makes me think that the answer to your questions is (almost) a guaranteed NO.
