If you are ranking well in G...I wouldn't touch a thing yet. I hear MSN will be developing a new Algo, which brings us back to square one. Who knows what the new Algo will like or dislike.
If you depend on most of your traffic from MSN, I'd lower KW density and test a few pages. After making changes, you should resubmit those pages for a quicker crawl. Otherwise for the present, all we can do is wait until MSN gets its act together. They do know they have a problem.
In fact, the site was well indexed in early january, so unless they had a algo modification at that time...

But IMHO, without relevant keywords on the page, no page description meta tags, no optimization, how do you expect MSNBot to find you?
Do you even have Meta Tags?
Do you have index/follow in a meta tag?
But IMHO, without relevant keywords on the page, no page description meta tags, no optimization, how do you expect MSNBot to find you?Just like millions of pages that are actually indexed by msn without resorting to these practices.
The fact is that, unless I replicate the entire content in a meta tag, which is counter-intuitive, there is no way I can put relevant (and non-duplicate) information in these tags. I don't have the resources to edit by hand 25000+ pages.
I use meta KW and desc on the index page, which has no clearly indexable content. Since msnbot doesn't understand wildcard matching in robots.txt, I also use 'meta name="robots"' one some pages to prevent indexing of duplicate content.
