Well, victim as in they essentially got demoted not because they did anything, but because Google arbitrarily favour big brands in certain niches and host-crowd these big brands too. If you're offended by the word "victim", then how about I rephrase that for you: they are unfortunate. In any case, you are wrong to aportion blame to these sites or say they got their "just desserts".
I'm not offended by anything.
Short of investigating all the PENGUIN winners and losers and their strategies and I can't see that depth of research being finished in 5 days... you cannot possibly come to the conclusion you came to with any degree of certainty.
I can certainly empathize but empathy isn't going to change your current disposition. (Your - used loosely to represent the alleged victims)
