Netmeg we are wary about that too. That's why it was sort of a "last resort" type of thing. I agree about not knowing exactly what brought us back, and I think Google has designed things that way for exactly that reason - among others.
For what it's worth, that was my Panda experience with one site. It may not be a scientific study or a controlled experiment, but perhaps if fifty other SEOs chime in with their success stories (please, please stop citing DannyWeb and Hubpages. There has to be other comebacks out there.) then we can develop a more substantive picture of what has really worked.
