Exactly. Everyone thinks a 301 will solve the problem and it might if Google's approach was simplistic but I've seen evidence to suggest once they flag content if you redirect it you're just redirecting flagged content to avoid webmasters easily escaping penalties.
Based on other members' experiences, a re inclusion request more often than not equates to nothing...not even a response. So if we have several hundred pages of unique content...what should we do? Rewrite the copy? It certainly is not low quality (maybe in Google's eyes). But we got hit this update and don't even have an emd.
