It really would be nice if Google did give some general feedback in GWT when your site experiences a ranking drop due to technical issues, bad links, or a content quality downgrade.
It would prevent webmasters who care from chasing every little thing they think may be causing the problem instead of actually concentrating on creating good content.
If your rankings drop and you don't receive a message then you can just assume that other sites are ranking better because of better content and quality back links.
Of course this would give the spammers a heads up but if done right (and IF Google can determine sites that scrape content ) it would force the spammers to produce quality content to rank.
