I see a decrease in Bing and slighter in Yahoo but I don't know right now if it's just because of all the pages I deleted right after Panda. I'll look more closely at that.
When you say "copied text" do you mean text that other sites copied from you AFTER you started rewriting the descriptions?
No, unfortunately I'm the one that originally copied text from other sites to use in linking back to them. Then others made copies of my pages.
I did mention the bad link in my reconsideration request, I think they can see that it wasn't like that when I first linked to the site.
I have heard back, they didn't say anything, just that they had reviewed my site and gave me a link to the webmaster guidelines.
