tedster, some of us frequent these forums, but don't live and breathe them every day. Like so many, we come here for help and advice and to learn. In the wake of Panda, this is a critical time for many.
I wish you'd start a sticky note thread which lists and continually updates some of the effective things people are doing that have improved their situation. It's difficult to scour through hundreds of long threads with bits and pieces of information scattered throughout and are often difficult to find.
What really works, what does not?
Such an thread could be entitled, say, "Solutions to current Panda problems."
Now, that would be helpful.
