Matt Cutts is out with a new video today, answering the question, "How do I know which links to remove when I get an "unnatural links" message?"
Matt gave some insight to a new feature that Google will be coming out with that will give you "a flavor" for what kind of links they are talking about. Matt spoke about Google becoming more transparent.
I think Google should be completely transparent on this issue, if they know what links they deem as unnatural, then let the webmaster know so they can work to remove them.
Stop with the half solutions, this is someone's livelihood that you are being cavalier about.
