It's not but say that it favors certain qualities that small sites are less likely to have. Plus what Google sends you may make improvement almost impossible: bad keyword referral = more people leave.
I find it difficult to believe that Panda is subjective. It must use objective assessment and it makes sense (to me at least) that if Google is using objective measures then we must be able to see them or at least the most important ones.
Don't want to out any site but the one I have in mind is a 'new media site,' they essentially fail every single point on the advice given by the Google Gods on how to write. (Maybe the owner follows Google's advice on what to wear or how to floss his teeth with gFloss ;))
It would be nice if folks who have evidence that shows that my observations can be ruled out because they are seeing other stuff to share that. Simply saying you are wrong doesn't add anything to the debate.
