Jimbeetle - no I seemed to bypass both panda and penguin, it was only the latest algo that obliterated my non-EMD, old (frequently updated), and very best website.
You might want to go back and re-watch the Matt Cutts video where he stressed that Google catches and discounts the type of links you described. He then stressed, stressed again and then re-stressed that unless you received an unnatural links notice or knew that you where engaged in spammy link building that you *should not* use the tool. The faq on the blog post also mentions using the tool if you were affected by Penguin.
