...there does appear to be a penalty applied that goes beyond a normal Panda re-ranking.
Would it be likely that there would be a penalty for content that is scraped / borrowed / stolen from other sites? Or does the original poster have to look in another area to see why the penalty is applied?
So while the content should be improved, and a mea culpa has been given for the crappy back links, what OTHER area should they focus on to discover why there is a penalty?
