but what really stood out to me was all the 10 year old sites that got slammed
I don't have a great critical design eye, but some of the serious content sites (the basket mine fall into) looked awfully good to me. Many of them commented on getting ripped-off all the time and suggested duplicate content issues.
Yes to both. The site of mine that got hit the hardest is literally 10 years old. It has also been constantly scraped and ripped off more times than I can even put into words.
