There is no reason to think that Panda scoring affects PageRank - no evidence of that at all. It might
amalgamation of individual owners rather than one big "website."
Would you trust the information presented in this article?Google has expanded its network of "trusted" sites that give your site "quality" by linking to you (the only positive source I see here of off-site boost offered by panda)
Would you be comfortable giving your credit card information to this site?. Do you use SSL, does your site have its own certificate?
Is the content mass-produced by or outsourced to a large number of creators, or spread across a large network of sites, so that individual pages or sites donít get as much attention or care?This may apply to article farms. But it could also be saying that even if google does identify the original source of the article, if you don't police it and do DMCA takedown on violaters, it can be detrimental to your SERPs health.
Does this article have an excessive amount of ads that distract from or interfere with the main content?Google loves ads. That's how they make money. Look for intrusive types of ads that google doesn't like.
Are the pages produced with great care and attention to detail vs. less attention to detail?This could indicate the possibility of analysis of site architecture or just the presence of html errors, or lack of site validation. Personally I've suspected for some time that CSS layout sites rank more highly.

Panda is a black hole, once you're trapped, your dead
