I understand where you are coming from and feel your pain... I hope its just a technical issue, and you find the problem. The fact that its hit so many... always scary.
Burning the whole house with a single match sounds like an efficient way of killing someone's business but I just can't picture Google to care enough to do something like that.
I have seen sites burned to the ground, and even moreso when there are networks of sites linked through Adsense, Analytics, etc.
Google owns the traffic and they do what they want, when they want, in the best interest of their best interest. The fact that you can find a common trail to yourself with just one or two clicks of a mouse is also relevant if this is not a technical issue.
