I was trying to crash two sites which survived this panda mess. Added excessive adsense above the fold, released thousands of thin URLs ... the sites are still fine.
I'm not sure that should be a surprise. Hasn't there been a post somewhere by a Googler about the recovery process for collateral damage sites or target sites that rework themselves taking some time (a month or more?).
If that's the case, might it not be reasonable to think that they might not move too quickly while that initial process works its way through the system?
