[edit reason] examplified domain [/edit]

So I redirected using .htaccess and it worked, I was ranking until the update.
No, I did not redirect to remove effects of Penguin or Panda because I do understand if I am penalized in one domain the penalty will go on to which ever domain I redirect it to.
www.example.net redirects to the .ws also, .net was banned on Google due to DMCA but redirecting it to my new domain never impacted my ranking.
To be more clear, I redirect 5 banned domains to this new one. Would that possibly be a reason for this problem? If I redirect only 1 or 2 would it make a difference?
...lets say 15 of them were banned from Google due to DMCA complaints...
