Yours is the first report we had of a change on Oct 5. Do you have WMT set up for the affected website? And if so, did you get any messages in there? I'm thinking that just maybe you weren't affected by an algorithm change but instead some kind of manual action.
Ted - are you supposed to get a webmaster notification for a manual penalty? One of my sites has dropped 200+ places for all keywords and there is nothing i can see to warrant that except a sitewide link on another site i own and that is it almost a EMD.
It is not a spammy of low quality site at all but the name i wanted was taken to i got widget-s instead (with a hythen).
Now i show nowhere for widget agency when i used to be first page.
