I'm dying to know what stage we're in? Seems like we're working the pattern in reverse.
GoogleGuy From Last Update-
I've noticed the same pattern with updates. There's a happy rush as everyone crowds into the room to see how many new pages got indexed, what their PR looks like, etc. Then there's a backlash when people look around at other people's sites and how the other guy did. This middle period is when the "sky is falling! spam is worse than ever!" threads get spawned. The last period comes when people sort of reach equilibrium and start to gather notes and plan their new changes.
