It would be so helpful if Google would simply post an official statement whether this is a temporary situation because of the update still running or if this will be permanently.
I would say it is still running judging from the remarks of fellow webmasters who have been hit (and are still hit it seems). Another observation that supports this is that the site that got hit is not ranking for its own articles at the moment while sites that copied the article are. Even an exact "" search does not list my site on position 1 which it always was when I searched in previous months.
I cannot just believe that the current SERPS are reflecting the quality that they are talking about.
I have to say they ****ed up badly if this is perm, at least judging from the searches that I made in the last couple days.
