Did Local Directories Get Hit By Google’s Doorway Page Algo?

Catching up on some reading and found something you directory people would be interested in.
...Barry Schwartz noted a Google Webmaster Forums thread on the subject where Google’s Eric Kuan from the search quality team highlighted a post that included the following:
An example of doorways is when you have a website with 200 pages on it, all of which have the same basic text but with place names switched out on each page (“Find a taxi in London”/”Find a taxi in New York City”). The pages are designed to rank separately, catch keyword searches, but funnel all the traffic to one destination

I was lead to that post from this one: Local Directories Just Got Doorwayed
Seeing this across several U.S.-based local directory sites. Not across the board, but more than a few.

So is it true? Did some of you get hit with Google's doorway page algo?
