Google Penguin and Answers Sites – a Personal Anecdote

I’m not sure what Google’s ultimately going to do with their ranking of Question and Answer (Q&A) sites. A simple search for the term “personal¬†anecdote” first brings up a Yahoo Answers page that points right back to the Dictionary.com definition, and the 2nd result is for Ask.com which I believe is a definition that is largely incorrect. At position #3 is the Dictionary.com result that atleast to me is correct and provides the most utility.
