Yes - this discussion is definitely veering off-topic. The thread is about tracking Google. Updates and SERP Changes. When we get into too much opinion and editorializing, we defeat that purpose.
I wonder whether there has been a "Minor Panda update" since Dec 19, 2011
A minor update, yes, however I see no reason to assume it's Panda. In fact, Matt Cutts recently tweeted that there would not be another Panda update through the end of the year.
