People have to realize that "throw your name away" is not advice for most serious businesses with good, and very good names. Have some aged domains ready to go is, though.
I agree completely. Hold on to the Pandalized domains, wait and see what happens for at least 3 months. Even the -50 penalties that I have encountered lasted for 3 months. Get a new domain started (to get some age on it, a few links, a little content), but don't throw in the towel. The advantage we have with Panda is that it is algorithmic, not manual. A manual penalty could be an indefinite duration. An algorithmic filtering can mean recovery, depending on what we do with our sites.
