Can u tell how you got rid of "supplemental" pages?

Like I said in the first post I'm still waiting to be released from the supplementals, but I have every confidence that it is just time.
In short all I have done to deal with the supplementals is ensured that each url has it's own title and meta description. Where I had a page containing the same (or a subset of) content words as another page I have added nofollow to the second page navigation and banned it using the robots.txt I have also cut down on the internal linking as I had pages with 200 links to internal pages, many of which just led to other pages with 200 links to other pages...etc. I spent an evening mastering(?!) the mod_rewrite and regular expressions and used this to make sure that the url's all resolve to where they should.

Lots of new sites lifting - I think this is another update.

Supplemental Results for URLs that are now redirects, or are now 404, hang around for a year before they are cleaned up in the SERPs.

I've moved on to the first page of google serps for 3 [quite] competitive phrases. Don't think I did too much in the last month as I couldn't figure out what I'd done wrong last month.
Before last month I was on the front page for one of the phrases but was knocked right out of SERPS altogether until today.

I'm very happy whenever I hear that advice people get here helps their sites improve. Of course, Gissit also had the intelligence to apply the information well -- nicely done, and we appreciate the "thank you".
I'm going to close the thread now to keep the conversation from wandering. What more is there to say, after all - it's a nice win!
