I should note:
The text change to the title on the site I've been talking about was discovered in some 'dofollow' links that were offsite. They should have been nofollow and someone tried to nofollow them, but it was done incorrectly. I didn't even think to double check them, because I know the owner of the site and assumed they were correct ... I guess one 'take away' from this thread is double (and triple) check everything, even off site areas where you think things are being handled correctly, because you know the person and they are usually very reliable.
The links are all nofollow now (I think - I will triple check them over the weekend to make sure), so it should be interesting to see how things play out over the next few days.
Huge thanks to indyank who noticed the error! ;)
