Does the Penguin ever rest in his efforts to boost crappy sites?

    This is a bizarre one - a very competitive adult niche, not just in number of searches but even more in value and cut-throat competition.
    My lovingly-linked, aged top 10 site was hit by the Penguin.
    But one of my crappy, sub-niche, thrown-together, barely-backlinked one page sites stayed in the top 20.
    When Penguin 1.1 hit, it moved into the top ten.
    Today, I wake up to see that it's now #1. It's not even designed for the main keyword's traffic, it's aimed at a small subniche - so I'm not making sales on it.
    I'm just laughing that it's #1 ahead of everyone who's been fighting for this keyword for years.
    I know it won't be there long, but it seems they're not solving problems with Penguin, they're making them worse. :cool:

    I guess there is a part encluded in the penguin algorithm stating to play with bhaters nerves by giving illogical search results.
