One strong analysis point she made early on was that her backlink profile is full of scrapers and legitimate re-publishers, many of whom were definitely tagged by Panda as being shallow. So she feels that rather having a strong, direct effect, Panda may have devalued half of their backlinks that were previously supporting the forum's rankings.
Not satisfied with just that, she also made several very savvy changes:
1. Added noindex meta tag to all threads with zero replies (orphans)
2. Stopped the indexing of site search result pages via robots.txt
3. Removed the tag clouds from Google indexing via robots.txt
4. Changed the URL structure (a project that she was avoiding)
