I just took a look at eHow (Demand Media's main site) on Alexa, they didn't get hit until the second Panda purge, but after that they took several demotions. They've only recovered from a very short hit in mid-October which could have been anything.
My hobby site that got killed at the same time as eHow came back and then jumped way ahead a couple months ago. But my site that got nailed in the original Panda has never budged, and I'm not sure any site that got killed in Panda 1.0 has recovered.
