I agree. Before swearing to get a day job (how many times have we said so :)) we need to wait. Many sites come within a few days, then new filters come back on, others get caught, filters are adjusted etc etc. It's obvious that filters are on right now, so let's see google tweak them a bit here and there.
I pray this is the case, I have been sitting at #1 for big terms myself for years. All my content is unique and high quality. I always believed that quality content stood for something given all the crap that is out there.
I have a site that gets 4k direct visits/day people love the site and come back often, it is now replaced and I am not joking with a site with articles that are keyword stuffed to the max. I have reported this site as it's basically spam and worthless, but nothing has ever come of it.
Anyways.. I am burnt from this day, stress level 10+ .. sucks to see your dreams,income and investments get flushed down the toilet with the flip of a switch.
I hate crappy content just as much as Google, that's why I spend the xtra $$ for quality content and nice sites...
