Unless I'm missing something, what you presented is actually evidence that *something* in the algo punishes for bad inbounds, and that's been something most of us suspected long before Penguin (it was called "Google Bowling" a few years back). And no one's arguing that links aren't part of Penguin, just that they aren't ALL it looks at. Or maybe you were responding to a more specific comment someone made and not the gist of the whole thread?
Whatever the case, nice work defeating the bullies. :)
Sorry, I was referring to someone else.....they gave their opinion that Penguin punishes and I confirmed it with my experience.
For the record, the site I took down was a pagerank 5 site.
