---- Why Haven't Sites Come Back from Panda? Matt Cutts Tries to Explain

And what was that earlier comment about internal link structures in Polish websites supposed to communicate? In other words, how does internal link structure affect the way Panda scores a website?
As I recall, Matt Cutts was explaining why Panda was only implemented on English based sites. My interpretation remains that Panda considers link structure, at least in part.
I've been watching one site that Panda hit pretty significantly. No ads, clean design, it appears to have a little over 4,000 inbound links, 100 of which are random sites, then 4,000 links from individual pages on one other topically similar site.
The subject site has about 20 obvious pages, half of which lead to product searches on the site. Search pages consist of content like: Widgets in Alabama Widgets in Alaska Widgets in Arizona which then lead to pages with content like: Widgets in County 1 Widgets in County 2 Widgets in County 3
There are 50 states and a little over 3,000 U.S. counties so the site has more than 3,000 pages with very shallow content consisting primarily of keywords and regions. The ten or so informational pages I saw reminded me of EHow and contained factual errors.
