I agree diberry. I really do.
I can say that I am done messing with my backlinks. I don't think there was ever an issue. I just took their mistake email blast as a real notice and wanted to make it right.
Panda hit my 11 year old, top ranking site VERY Hard. Cut my traffic in half. Then it hit my site again recently on 11-28 (Panda 20, I believe?) So even after 18 months of improvements, changes.... looking, researching....removing huge portions of my site (like I said the forum, article directory) - I am down to a quarter of the traffic I had prior to April 2011. Barely enough to notice. My mind says - dump the site, let it go. My heart says.... 13 years of hard work, everything created by me - no funny stuff, just a passion for the topic -- keep fighting.
It's hard to know what to do.
