It doesn't mater how original they were when you wrote them and posted them, (or how unfair it may be if someone scraped them or copied them, etc.), all that matters is: how original are they TODAY and does google see them as YOURS?
That's what I'm thinking too. Which perhaps suggests that one of the main reasons I am pandalized is because my content has been so widely scraped perhaps, since my most heavily penalized pages have the most content?
If that's the case, what do I do? I can't stop the scrapers. This seems like a question Google really needs to answer.
