Interesting that so many are complaining that their own sites took a traffic hit with the update. How many of those were the ones asking for Google to do an update to clean out the content farms? Ask and ye shall receive. Did you think that any algo update would only affect a handful of "content farms" and miss anyone else? Instead of complaining about content you don't like and asking Google to do something, go out and outrank the crappy content. It takes hard work and some knowledge but I've never had much of a problem outranking content farms.
