I found this article via the Warrior Forum. Google is going to be cracking down on the amount of spam on the search engines, and it might be targeting content mills, too.

We already have a few threads open on this
Just checked it out.
So, is this good or bad for HP?
It's good for sites that promote non spam content. I don't know how much duplicate content Hubpages contains, but it probably is not enough to cause a huge issue.
Several smaller spam sites are panicking now, and are asking users to remove duplicate content. Some of the less reputable forums are also seem to have a lot of scared members as well!
That we have to do here in cleaning this site from spammer , if you find any spam profile flag it !
As they say, content is king, legitimate websites will float to the top, poor quality will sink to the bottom, its just that simple
I hope their "discoverer" works soon! Its getting NASTY to search for almost anything! so, that'll be real good - I reallly am looking forward to less spam. everywhere.
Search engine spam is getting out of control, so if Google can put something in place to effectively filter the true spam, then it should be a good thing. We'll have to reserve judgment until we see how it works, though.

Traffic went down like the Titanic, this happened suddenly just over a week ago. What might be the cause? Who is seeing the same? I have a dark scent that HP, which is a critical platform as well, might become a victim...
