Suddenly more sites 950'd

Is this a new wave?

I experienced 5 sites/directories getting 950'd several weeks ago when this whole thing started, and have been working to get them back. (see the big long 950 thread if you want details).

Now, just this morning (06/28/07), my flagship site got slammed. Its structure is entirely different from those that got hit earlier, so this is a totally unexpected bad turn.

My question is: are any of you discovering a new round of 950'd sites? I'm wondering if this is a new devil or the old one, just taking this long to reach me again?

"I have 2 pages that went 950 for ALL phrases."
That's the more normal behavior for the penalty.

Really? From what I've seen and read, I would guess a huge majority of pages hit with -950 are hit for certain phrases, but still rank for a few phrases.
