I didn't think I had any article directory submissions with that anchor text, but I found about four that did and made some changes.
There are a large number of inbound links to this page with the anchor text, but it is mostly natural links. It's simply a common name for this category. As in, it fits perfectly.
Hopefully removing that anchor text helps, but I highly doubt it will. Such a small number...
As a side note, these were quality articles. Why should Google have any say in what we put in our bylines? That in itself is ridiculous, in my opinion. We shouldn't be punished for writing quality content for someone else--even if it is an article directory--and writing a byline.
FWIW, a couple of these articles were written four+ years ago.
