Some public traded companies, some with tens of millions of backlinks. I have watched many take radical redesigns with no recovery and apparent further decay after redesign.
I dont think you the webmaster or SEO can do a damn thing to change what was put into play with Panda and you are wasting your time.
Smart words, I learned the hard way. Treat any messages from Google PR team as such, PR designed to delay, to protect their reputation and not tell the obvious. In the same category I would put the Google koolaid drinkers that refuse to admit that Google may have made a mistake or that the site is fixed.
At some point you will harm your site doing change after change because Google didn't respond to the first changes. So use your common sense, look at what others have done, results from it and choose the most reasonable explanation, even if it includes engaging in blasphemy and assuming that Google might be not as noble as they claim.
