If that's the case, it isn't a Google Search problem, it's a user problem--assuming that it is a problem, which is open to debate.
If incoming links and popularity still matter to Google then you may be right. I think many people have no idea what good evidence or references are. I see people that think hearsay or anecdotal evidence counts. A google search for the word anecdotal gives ironic results.
