Just an update, I have been getting a LOT of links removed by emailing webmasters. I've been requesting removal on the sites that were the most loosely related, and the ones where the links were the most obvious SEO anchor text.
So far, I have only seen my site's rankings drop further.
This is very frustrating. I plan to keep on trying though. If things don't change in a few more months, I plan on starting my site from scratch on a new domain name.
