In which case he would choose to remain silent, because?
I know there are things which can and cannot be done by public companies. I don't think that anybody besides us webmasters could care whether these results are slight worse or slightly better - I don't believe the average surfer would know the different, unless they searched for something regularly.
Here's an idea for GoogleGuy though, other stuff aside... If someone were to use your engine, and it's likely that most of the internet users in the world have sone so then would changing results be a bad thing, regardless..
For example, let's say my neighbor was thinking of going to costa rica (a nice place), and imagine he used Google to look it up, but didn't order. Then he returns a week or 2 later, only to find that with the same search query, he can no longer find the same site he was looking at a week previous. The guy scratches his head and says to himself "maybe I can find it with Yahoo.." Let's say he does find it there - Google has lost a user because they were let down.
So, is consistenceny more useful that the "minor upgrades" which might, in all honesty considering the mass audience, be doing more harm than good?
GoogleGuy. What magnitude of a problem do you see this as being? Do you think these changes in rankings confuse, at least, a minority of persons?
