As per our modified SEO strategy on the aftermath of Penguin attack, we decided to remove all the comment links from blogger and wordpress blogging platforms (free hosted).

On the first place, we requested the bloggers to remove the comments along with the links.

Secondly, we used Blogger's report abuse tool to report the spammy blogs.

While, we got tremendous success by implementing these strategies, still many left to be removed.

What are you people doing? Could anybody help me with an effective strategy with this?

Thanks in advance! :)

If the comments are nofollowed then it won't make a difference. Focus your energy on links you are responsible for, links where you had a hand in selecting anchor text etc.

Agree. If the links are nofollow, they shouldn't harm you. Also, you need not add a link in each and every comment. Its good to be selfless and get no link in return of a comment. This will make your your commenting and link building activity look natural and not intentional.

If your link is in the content & in natural way, we not need to take any action but many time you see huge number of comments by automated system or comments specially used to target some particular keywords, in that case you must report such pages to google.

you can always use the Disavow in Google webmaster tools to no count those links or sites in your backlinks.

Just want to clarify that in-content links in a guest post are considered unnatural by Google.

Totally agree!

We are in the process of removing unnatural links from a client's website and it has several such "in-content" links that has keyword rich anchors and so definitely not natural

As for the OP's question, if you have tried everything in your capacity and still can't get those links removed, then simply list those blog URLs in a txt file and submit it to the Google Disavow Tool. Also it would help if you could show a documentary evidence of your attempts (either in a spreadsheet or via an email account) in getting those links removed while filing your reconsideration request

From a Matt Cutts video I was shown lately, depending on the scale of the link footprint, Google state that action may still be taken on 'nofollow' links.

As with everything Matt says, take with a pinch of salt if your actual experience differs.
