yes, it really would be simple to determine the "sky is falling" issue by a simple yes or no to the question of whether or not the Florida update is complete. If the update is complete, then the sky HAS fallen for many people - including many whitehats. If the update is not complete, and still has algos and filters yet to be added, then the sky has not yet fallen, and perhaps won't. (although even a few days of lost rankings can hurt).
