Why would they do that?
That would leave ONLY the big boys in the organic SERPs.
But they didn't get hit?
Are they big business (Amazon/ e-bay/ Walmart) and the likes or...?

I'm out. Not forever, but I'm in a serious state of transition
My next move?
I have no idea. Am I alone on that feeling
The way Panda is going, are you trashing your online strategy, waiting it out or what?

The google fanboy crowd can't really say much now but they were in full force a while back, with glee and a sense of superiority too.
The sites that were built to ignore the algorithm rather than exploit it, they got through panda just fine.

All the panda sites are commisserating. No, that's not the word, they're whining and complaining.
Is Panda actually the commercialization of the internet?
It's like the land you live on now and have been living on for years. Suddenly one day it becomes covered by water, and the water now becomes the land. There are those who point and say shame on you for adapting to live on that land! You should have known that the land would become water and the water would become land! I knew this was going to happen and that's why I built my house with a hull. It's your fault for not predicting this would happen!
There is a group of people though, who are very on Google's side
why are sites which have made massive improvements seeing no difference at all, 5 months in, while some see full recovery?
I can't help but think some site owners wouldn't know good content from...something else
There is a group of people though, who are very on Google's side. Google fans? What's the polite term?
and then the next day Matt Cutts posts and says "no one has recovered from Panda yet"
I've seen a lot of Pandalyzed websites up close at this point. I have not yet seen an example that I feel deserved their pre-Panda level of traffic.
I can't help but think some site owners wouldn't know good content from...something else. And how much improvement can one make in 5 months that can be fixed after years of posting on Craigslist for $5 an article? Pulling a couple ad units off certainly isn't going to be a silver bullet. I've seen some before and afters out there and I'm not terribly impressed.
yet my directory site was hit for image "thinness"?
You've got to stop thinking blanket rules.
