Notice of DMCA removal from Google Search

I posted a quite naive thread a week ago about a DMCA removal notice that I received, where I asked whether they will be ok with me modifying content and not removing the entire page,
http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ttributor.html

Well, why naive? Because apparently, even though I modified the content almost immediately, I saw only after a few days that complaint has been made to Google as well. Now I've completely removed ( unpublished) the page, even though the modified content should be alright.

My Q is, whether after removing the post, is there anything else I should do? I don't want to contact Google because they demand personal details , that might be forwarded to the other company and I don't want that.
So, do they check automatically that the URL is no longer active? Can this potentially harm my entire site, because I do notice a quite significant reduction in traffic ( that post wasn't so important to the entire site).

Will appreciate any experienced help.

    You should remove the entire page as well, to get rid of this otherwise penalty is very big.. be careful to such things.

      I did remove the page ( should I redirect it somewhere?)
      And still, felt a hit in traffic in the last couple of days..

        Your hit in traffic was likely the Google update many experienced on the 7th of May.

          Why would you redirect a page that you felt Google might take the action. You got caught violating the law. delete the page and be done with it.
