@1script I had a company blog that was hit by Panda and was knocked down almost 90% traffic. I never received any kind of message from Google. I submitted a reconsideration request (figured why not) and they responded that there was no manual penalty on my site. About a month and a half later the site returned back to full traffic (after another Panda refresh). I didn't do anything to the site, left it on the back burner and a few months later I was back to normal.
