I suggest the folks to start assessing their Panda remedial works based on the current results of the above mentioned 3 updates.
@reseller Folks should assess their site after each and every update. When I was hit by Panda2 it was like a light switch - 60% gone instantly. Lights out! When I escaped Panda in 10/2011 the lights instantly went on. Nothing that I did for almost 6 months made any difference. I did a massive amount of work - more than 10 people full time for 6 months. We're talking 8-10k hours of I.T. time. And nothing moved the dial.
So I need to ask, will assessing a Panda'd site on 3 updates in 1/2012 make a bit of difference? In my experience, nope.
At the end of the day, do what you think is best for the end users + follow all the good practices talked about here on WebmasterWorld and you've got a good shot at killing the black and white beast.
