This forum indeed has hundreds if not thousands of posts with concern about Google's dominance, so Mt Fewkes et. al. you are definitely "preaching to the choir" about that.
On this particular topic of the elimination of Google's host crowding filter for certain query terms, I think it's important to note that it IS only certain very limited query terms.
I can certainly see how the average person entering a brand search like [IBM] would be well served by more than 2 results from the IBM website. And on that particular search, even Big Blue doesn't get all the results, not even #3 (Wikipedia) or #4 (Yahoo! Finance).
