semi-weeds in lawn

Thanks Eric Liskey for the'maybe' solution re: clover and violets in my lawn. I'm an inactive Penn State Ext. Srvc. Master Gardener and seem to recall something about certain soil conditions which contribute to violets in the lawn...can you refresh my memory?

Compacted soil and shady conditions tend to favor violets over turfgrass.
