I tighten purls in Continental by slightly tipping my hand back at the wrist, away from the needle, to give a slight tug. Nonaknits describes a technique that improved her ribbing where she wrapped her wool in the other direction for purl stitches in some cases to fix the sagginess.
I didn't have any luck with it, but others have. I was told that my unevenness was caused by differing tension between my knits and my purls, my purls were tighter.
