"We deeply care about the people who are generating high-quality content sites, which are the key to a healthy web ecosystem," Singhal said.
"Therefore any time a good site gets a lower ranking or falsely gets caught by our algorithm - and that does happen once in a while even though all of our testing shows this change was very accurate - we make a note of it and go back the next day to work harder to bring it closer to 100 percent."
"That's exactly what we are going to do, and our engineers are working as we speak building a new layer on top of this algorithm to make it even more accurate than it is," Singhal said.
Tedster, what is your feel on "thin" pages as they may pertain to Panda? Do you get the feeling that they should be deleted or added upon?
question: How do you PING a single page (not sitemap) to Google so it gets it right away without waiting to see links to it or normal crawl? Other than tweeting. I know that Google will get a sitemap in seconds , is there a trick for pages? I want Google to see changes ASAP

Google is working to help original content rank better and may, for instance, experiment with swapping the position of the original source and the syndicated source when the syndicated version would ordinarily rank highest based on value signals to the page.
Several people have commented on spammy sites with exact math domains and lots of spammy incoming links with exact match anchor text ranking quite well in Google and Bing. Matt said they are looking into this.
Re-ranking occurs continually, more often frequently than daily. The Caffeine infrastructure turned up the speedometer on that, too.
