@steerpikegg, I know what you are saying and how you're feeling.
As I mentioned, a site of mine was enjoying 2000+ uniques per day. A sudden drop, and that number is around the 200 uniques per day. In my instance, based on where I'm at, I'm about as buried as you might be in the Google SERPS. I'm fine in Bing and Yahoo still just like you. Our domain choice is similar also.
Am I submitting a reconsideration? No. Do I think it's something I've done? No. Am I under Panda? Most likely. I've been updating and cleaned up. It just so happens that the subject came out of the shadows. As a result, I guess I'm just a POS site. My rankings would indicate that.
I bring up my site because it's relevant to your situation I believe. It's at least relevant to the core of your experiment. The aspect that does differ, is that "premium site" dominate the top results, but I'm so far back that every Tom, Dick and Harry rank better.
Ooops I said I was done in my last post. My bad!
