Seems like the update is a bit of a mixed bag of results.
Just like what happened with Panda, Penguin, etc., we're only seeing EMD 1.0 at the moment. I'm sure many that have issues currently won't have them when the next update occurs, assuming the problems have been properly reported via the proper channels.
Makes me wonder if other factors aren't also at play, even offsite factors. Such as the site previously was flagged for using paid or 'unnatural' links but it didn't sink until one more ding was applied, which was now also having an EMD. I could see how a perfectly fine appearing site doing some things they shouldn't finally toppled like a Jenga tower when Google bumped the table.
