Junk site on first page - I am disgusted

What I call a junk site - rather new site (around one year old), "103 of about 493 pages" of which all supplemental except the home page, and for good reason:

Home page containing a few sentences of low quality "content", footer with around 50 links to TOTALLY unrelated sites, of the kind Matt has described in recently, - hotels, web hosting, work at home, casino, medical - I mean EVERYTHING!

Inner pages mostly contain one word (a keyword) on H1 - no other content whatsoever!

OK now, this site is #6 on its serp - a two-word keyword with 6 mill. results - not terrible, but a "good" keyword, not red widgets, but something of universal interest.

And my site, containing 500 pages of original, excellent content (most not written by me, but by professional people in the field, not freelancers), all pages in the main index, lots of first positions on secondary keywords is still suffering from the -61 syndrome for its main keyword. Thrown from the first page to the 6th 5 months ago, because true, I';ve linked to bad neighborhoods but it's been over 3 months that I've dumped all these pages and kept only the good links. I did what I felt was RIGHT, I just deleted the pages - no redirects, that's what I feel an honest webmaster would do. The site is rising to the 3rd page, then one day, bam, it sinks back to the 6th because of this damn filter.
