Scraper Site Clearout Collateral Damage?

It seems like google has purged many scraper sites from the google serps, as per this thread: I'm sure many people, including myself are very, very pleased about this as it stops scumbag sites from stealing our content.

Bad Behavior - IO ERROR

by 5 others (via)

It goes far beyond User-Agent and Referer, however. Bad Behavior is available for several PHP-based software packages, and also can be integrated in seconds into any PHP script.
