Your dates seem remarkably similar to mine Frost_Angel, I've just submitted abuse reports to Google and a major registrar.
It is just a symptom or side-effect of it.
Whilst I am not disagreeing with this it evidently smacks of an almighty fubar by Google that this could have happened and never been rectified when so many have complained and questioned why they were penalised.
Is this an issue with the other search engine?
For me definitely not.
