I'm noticing similar behavior with the official update as last week's update that had nothing to do with the official update. Plural keywords going inactive while singular versions holding at "great" and vice-versa. The major difference I see from last week is that the minimum bids are not jumping as drastically, 10 - 30 cents instead of 5 - 10 dollars.

Makes sense from G's point of view. Their is no competition on long tail terms. If they heard everyone towards more general terms, more money is made as competition heats up. Of course this the opposite of what they wanted when the QS was introduced.
