I am running a network of 15 niche sites, and haven't done anything edgy in terms of spam linking in comment fields etc. but the sites are linked together with sitewide links, all together this is several thousand links that uses the same anchor text.
So you have a link farm all of your very own and are wondering if it is causing 'problems' ...
The short answer is ... Yes it is
Forget them, it won't make ANY difference, Fifteen years "you might have gotten away with it", but "them pesky kids" have got a whole lot smarter these days.

I think it depends a lot on what these niches are and how closely related they are to each other. If one site sells auto parts and another lists child psychologists by city, then there's no reason to link them together at all, much less to stick links on every page.
If they have similar audiences, then it's probably fine to link the sites together, but even then run-of-site links might not be the best way to accomplish that. You might be better off with one page on each site that talks about the relationships between the sites and links to them from there only. But if that makes sense, it kind of begs the question of why they're separate sites in the first place.
So what makes these links good for the user, as you suggest? Sure, it makes it easy for them to get from one site to another, but should they be expected to want to get from one site to another?
