It's not "manipulating the algorithm" at all. It's just a page that may or may not be relevant to the users query. Often times it's more relevant than other results right around it - it depends entirely on the context and results. So your mileage will vary. I have run into those pages and most of the time I find them relevant to the search. If Google starts banning lists of links we would all be in trouble.
