It sounds like Google continues to have trouble with scrapers. They attempted a solution a few weeks before Panda first rolled out, but Panda messed that up. Then with the next to last Panda (September 17) it looked like they finally had a handle on it. This came right after they asked for webmasters to report examples where the scrapers had taken over the SERPs.
But now their new-found handle has turned slippery again. I appreciate how difficult the scraped content problem could be. But it shouldn't be any more difficult than designing an algorithm to measure quality, after all.
It looks to me like Panda and the scraper detection algo are at war with each other. They need to get BOTH these areas right.
