I agree with you but have to tone it down because some people get very emotional regarding Google.
IMO pandalized sites keep going down becuase Google still has them as "bad sites" and obviously wants them to get less and less traffic. On other Panda google added certain things, took some out in the next one, add new ones..etc so we see some sites come out.
If that's not balanced then they don't care. Think of US dropping a few nukes in Pakistan to "fight the Taliban". So I'm not buying it. You don't launch a new system with such draconian penalties based on how the site was that one day with no recovery in sight. You can start gradually for example, not with a 70% drop.
I'm suggesting that what Google cares about is the quality of their search results. I know that's a strange concept, but it's only what they built their entire multi-billion dollar business on, eh?
I still think that they have enough power to run the whole thing at least monthly. IMO, they are having their "nerds strike back" victory dance even though many sites were caught innocently.
