Brands acquire links. Generic sites build them.
I agree with the analysis you and whitey have made, Google were quite clear about what they were looking at with approval, and even what some of it's signs would be..but they did not go into detail, they are looking hard, picking up a lot of things, examining them, and putting them back down again or rejecting them, but after each panda run and each aglo run, when the dust has died down, they do seem to be able to identify "brands" better..
If you are not a "brand"..looking like one to Google, is, like the saying goes "as hard as faking sincerity", and you won't pull it off forever..
