I get the impression that the only thing works to improve ranking after Panda is deleting low performing pages the 0 to tiny traffic pages.
I am still thinking of deleting 200 pages should I go for 410, 404 or remove manually in Google webmaster tool using the removal tool.
(404: delete with no action)
Which method is better?

You could also debate whether to use a 301 redirect.

My tests have shown that it doesn't make any difference...

I show 404 header and remove via WMT.

Thinking more, you damn right indyank.
There aren't many indicators for deleting content makes any difference although it makes sense..

Being passive has never been a strong point for me BUT I guess no other choice right now.

I show 410 and let Google handle automatically. It can take several months for all of the URLs to vanish from the SERPs.
