I looked at four of the sites that complained they were a victim of this change. All I can say is Wow! Looks to me like Google did a pretty good job in the four cases I examined. It was hard to find any information among all those ads. Clearly the sites were not made for visitors, rather to only make a dime.
Yeah, I would not have posted my URLs if I were most of them. I think to survive in this business you have to be a little more realistic about how your stuff compares to the competition than what I saw on most of that thread. There were a few good site in there that didn't seem to fit but many of them were more ads than content.
It is a good read though. Looking through the sites on the list kind of lets you see the patterns of what Google was going after.
