from what I can see, google is punishing a lot of sites with questionable links. A lot of sites got hit today in the markets I watch daily. Several of my sites got hit and I have no problem with it because they are low quality/neglected sites.
I think this will not get reversed. I know everyone thinks there site is perfect and can do no wrong, but try to look at your site and your marketing efforts from an unbiased view. SEO has finally caught up to the standards I have set out for myself. I have always been cautious about every link to my sites and now that day has come where it has paid off. Pretty much every site I see as spam, google has finally caught up with and dealt with appropriately. From what I can see, this was a good update, even if it hurts some of my sites, this will be better for everyone in the long run.
Some legit sites will probably get hit as well but I guess its for the greater good.
