@zeus, I'm curious about the stats of your two sites in the same niche, one that's Panda'd and one that isn't.
In your post earlier you didn't mention all the actual stats. In Google Analytics for the last month, what's the Average Time on Page, Bounce Rate and Exit Rate for each site?
Something I learned today has changed my thinking slightly.......I'm now wondering if Google works out some sort of average from the user metrics of sites in each niche and then sets upper and lower limits around the average (quality band). So it could be that your non-Panda'd site is spot on statistically for the niche and so is deemed a quality site, whereas your Panda'd site is outside the acceptable ranges, possibly due to a section of the site that's producing radically different stats to the rest of the site.
Post your stats and we'll see if anything makes sense.
