One thing to remember though is that Squidoo did not have as much traffic as hubpages had, so it was akin to Panda "knocking down" hubpages' traffic to the level of Squidoo traffic.
While we are talking about this, I think it is also important to note that while ehow escaped Panda 1, it was hit by Panda 2.
I bring this up because I think that to better understand Panda, we have to look at where it WORKED well (hubpages, mahalo, suite101, etc.,) and see if there is anything that we can learn from them. There might be another common thread among them that we are missing.
