November 28 Data Refresh?

Is anybody else noticing the effects of a data refresh today? Starting about five hours ago I've noticed significant changes in Google referrals across one of my sites. Smells just like a few Google "data refreshes" of the past.

I seem to be able to confirm across most all of the data centers that terms I was in the top ten for are now nowhere to be found... not even in the top 200. This is going to make for a really bad holiday season for my product orientated site.

My site is just over two years old. I know that's not a large amount of time but it's not insignificant either. I'm not so sure it's a newness thing. Any structural changes of any sort i.e. removing / adding lots of pages?

A few datacenters are still pre-28th like

That one's not pre-28th for me.

I really haven't done much other than fix a dup content issue. A few weeks ago, I was ranking around 14th and then woke up one morning to ranking much much lower. I realized google had inserted 100's of dup content pages caused by my bad programming. I fixed the prob and worked up to 9th. Then this.
