---- Panda is a brilliant move. Here is one BIG reason why

what Google want all webmaster do and be serious about your site and make it as perfect as possible
Most webmasters have always been "serious", but we had a big problem ~ Google.
Google is one of, if not THE, primary reason that webmasters were hesitant to work on their sites.
This forum alone is filled with many many references to the fear that webmasters had developed in changing/adding anything to their pages. The fear was fundamental ~ if they made any changes, they'd get nailed with a ranking drop, so people left well enough alone.
Did changing anything always result in a hit by Google? Of course not, but it happened SO often it became a fear factor. Even the most cursory review of postings here in the archives will show that to be the case.
Google's attitude reminds me of some governments that shall remain unnamed: Foment unrest in a country so troops can be sent in to suppress the unrest.
In Google's case, it's: Create fear (their infamous FUD policy) so no one knows what to do about their sites, then send in the artillery (Panda) to punish anyone who did not know what to do about their sites.
"Smart" is not what I'd call this move ~ "Manipulative" comes closer to the mark, IMO.
