If you are talking about "correcting" my spelling or forcing me to search for things I don't want to, then what they are trying to do is stupid.
Ususally Google's problems stem from them thinking they are doing something better than they are. But now a significant problem is they simply refuse to return results for a query, no matter how many "quotation marks" or +pluses or -minuses I use.
This is a really stupid idea if only because it makes their results much crappier.
Heaven forbid that you should ever try to be a famous person in the future with a common last name but a unique spelling of your first name. Google simply will not let you become famous because it will not serve up results for the way you spell your name.
