I'm not at all convinced that it's any kind of penalty

As we bantered back and fourth in email he shocked me a few times stating many areas were going to be virtually locked out to competition, whatever that meant to him at the time.
could this temporarily actually lower your rankings?
I didnít put much stock in what was said at the time and still donít but Google could be delving into how many web sites are being run by an entity.
How drastic has anybody got, im thinking of stripping my site back to just a few pages from 30,000. Me and my staff have spent 8 years creating the content but if it helps our top 3 pages recover thats what we will have to do.
If you dig little further and you will see a lot of these sites were last indexed April 9th there is no fresh update.
I have had sites that used to get index on pretty much daily basis or every 2 days. But since the update sites that lost position have not been indexed.

Panda, whether Google admits it or not, is definitely applied site wide.
Concerning Panda being applied site wide, why would I see some keywords continue to rank on first page while others dropped many, many pages.
