*sigh* This is after being listed recently on Dmoz / Yahoo and having 900 more pages being indexed.
Definately causing some issues with placement on www-ex for some of the targetted keywords.
Not that big an issue .. the site is only 3 or 4 months old. Plenty of time to change. :)
[edited:- Ugh! Dropped a PR point on 3 sites. From 5 across the board to 4 across the board. Definately going to have to get some advice from the gurus now.]

Lost a lot of backlinks according to google-ex, even though we truly doubled our backlinks. We also dropped 20+ positions for several keywords which we've optimized for even more than before with anchor text, H1's, etc.
Google-ex, say it ain't so!
Looks to me like they trounced multiple links from the same site from a quick look. I suspect they've dealt a hit to back-links.
I think there is a very big change going on though. Perhaps the update is going to involve a lot more than www www2 and www3 I think this one is going to be very gradual across lots of the data centers.
Last thing I wanted to mention: I'd appreciate any spam reports of pages with hidden text or hidden links over the next couple weeks. If you've already submitted a report on a page, you don't need to re-submit it though. Thanks everyone..
1) I can see they've picked up my new site from its Dmoz listing.
2) The backlinks have been seriously reduced. Does not show Yahoo or Dmoz.org linking back to me. Is that normal?
I'm hoping that this is a case of us panicing before the update has settled on www-ex
