The question was raised about having a secondary ferment blow excess wort
through the air lock. Did it ruin the beer?....

I doubt it. Actually, the times that has happened to me, the beers all came
out quite fine; sooooo, don't worry, just be more patient before racking and
wait until the activity is slowed way down.

I put all the secondary ferments into a refrigerator to condition and clear.
Usually a week or two is sufficient.
