Good post, I actually posted a question about the site own which is pretty much what you describe. We have high quality content, we do reviews on widgets which are regarded as the best and most extensive in our industry.
We have a forum with more than 300k threads which are all very suitable for long tail queries.
I do hope that Google will update their algorithms in such a way that things get better again. At the moment I think we have to work more on SEO than webmasters that do nothing than targeting the SERPS.
I rather focus on content creation than SEO...
