While I think parts of this discussion have some merit, the rest of it sounds like a desperate struggle to make sense of Panda... grasping at straws. It is highly unlikely any search engine will ignore the "content" when it is content they wish to serve to their visitors. I would have to see much more compelling data to make me change that point of view.
Duplicate content or redundant content makes perfect sense for demotion in serps. This, I believe, remains the biggest problem for Pandalized sites.
