Garry Illyes has tweeted that personally he doesn’t have rights to apply any changes in a website manually. It means he cannot manually penalize a website instead he has some other better way to do it.

Be conscious for repeating path while creating the URLs
John Mueller said that the website which have been using the same path for many URLs will be stuck with problems since Google decided that it will “skip URLs that repeat the same path element many times”.
So if you are a owner of dynamic website and you are using the rewriting for your website’s URL but in a way that displays the same path multiple times for most of your URLs then it will bring some issues while Google indexing.
He discussed about the site wandelingen.nl which frequently changes the URL after entering the website. He suggested not to do the rewriting of URLs in this fashion otherwise it will take you to trouble.
