Is it possible that Panda does not like sites which link out to many other sites as an editorial service to the user?
In my case that's true. In articles on a pandalized site I have dofollow links to other relevant sites and pages, about 1 link per article.
However, other sites in my niche also do the same and rank well so I'm not so sure if that's the problem.
I would like to suggest that everybody double check their outbound links. Over the last five years, I published about 2,000 posts on the site, and recently I did a link check and found that I had more than 300 broken links to external pages, mostly 404. When I add to that about 400 ugly amdfhxyz.com-like affiliate links accumulated over time, my outbound link profile looked pretty bad. I fixed that 404s and removed aff links, so we'll how the next Panda will react.
