I have thought about that as well, but what is Googles definition of "thin", what are they using as a metric to qualify a "thin" page?
I removed 20 pages from a site that was hit with a 50% reduction of traffic, they were short articles 200-300 words.
The site has about 80 articles in all, so 1/4 of the site was thin from what I can tell.
They were in the main menu of the site so Google might have thought "these short articles in main menu = thin", I replaced with 500 word+ articles.. will see if it helps.
