---- Google's 950 Penalty (part 4) - or is it Phrase Based Re-ranking?

My gut is telling me that this isn't really a penalty, it's an interactive effect of the way the Google dials have been turned in their existing algo components. It's like getting a poor health symptom in one area of your body from not having enough of some important nutrient -- even though you've got plenty of others and plenty of good health in many ways.
And that symptom is bad Local Rank?
If it's Local Rank then why would people be just fine for certain SERPs and dead in the water for others? I don't see why we would have more Local Rank inbounds for Red Widgets than we would for Green Widgets.
And even then, wouldn't we just slide down 50 spots, as opposed to 500 spots? I mean, that's a huge drop.
