I dont get this discussion, if I build a site, I want the user to have a good experience, so I want them to find what they are looking for in no time and then they will automatically leave the site quickly again. Google search engine also want the user to find what they are looking for as quickly as possible, you see that in there rankings. The best sites are build so example a search engine find that page a user wants and not a page that link to another, then to another....then they find what they looking for, that would be a bad user experience.
So the conclusion for the best user experience is, they have to find what they are looking for in no time and leave with a smile, thats a TOP site.
I think panda is just about unique content, means you need to have text/layout that no other has and dont copy other sites with those tools, which changes some words, of cause this is a little hard for image sites, which is mostly my category, but I think when you add a little text / a few words thats maybe a good thing, but dont stuff it with all kind of bla bla no user wants to read that, they are just interested in the images, google would like bla bla, but not the visitor.
