There is likely no way you can interlink your content to overcome Panda
Thanks for your feedback - I wasn't quite clear with your answer but the first question was more whether removing interlinking between subdomains could help.
It seemed believable that either:
(1) the interlinked subdomain is treated as part of the main site, which would therefore perhaps suffer the associated 'sitewide panda penalty', or
(2) it would NOT be treated as part of the main subdomain, which would therefore be seen as 'excessive interlinking between two separately owned sites'.
Quite possible I'm clutching at straws though. As you know the problem is everything is so hard to pin down - we see many other sites behaving in ways that to all appearances should get them penalised and sailing along without a problem, while other clean looking sites seem to get penalised unnecessarily.
Perhaps as much to do with some general assigned trust factor as anything else.
