There is a theory floating around that the cause of this massacre is too many pages with not enough link juice to support each page."
the only pages that got hammered in my case are the ones with external links.
I wrote an article last night on my blog and in the USA SERPs is on the second page. if i search it's title, the second result on the first page of the USA SERPs is some scraper that has my article in the description tag of his page and there's NO content on that page, except for a few images and AdSense. it even violates the AdSense TOS.
I wrote a DMCA complaint and Google said "Thanks!

It's been a few hours since then and I received no confirmation.
