I think once again that when Matt Cutts says "low quality" he is not talking about the quality of the site, but his view of the quality of the linking.
Isn't that what those other algorithm updates were supposed to cover -- backlinks, don't know which one -- panda/penguin (I haven't followed those so I don't know)? Why would they have excluded exact keyword match or near exact keyword match domains from those and now include them?
One of my sites has dropped 5 spots from middle of page 1 to middle of page 2. It's the one site I least wanted to drop and DEFINITELY did not deserve to be pushed down, it's clean. The owner has a heart as big as the universe -- she does so much for people here locally through her service. I'm not feeling well this morning.
Google, you are a bunch of vicious people, the gloves are coming off now. Oh yeah and the one competitor site that is spam and should have dropped hasn't moved.
