Tedster, I agree. They need to revert this change, and simply do a manual human analysis of eHow. Google's results will never be perfect. They need to stop tweaking their code, and start introducing a batch of live surfers that rank sites for results.
I don't think they need to revert the change and do an manual analysis of eHow. I think they need to keep the change and do a manual review (not that I think that will actually happen). Google can't get into the game of manually and subjectively judging quality. It isn't scalable and it's much more open to potential lawsuits because of the fact that it's so subjective.
As to the contention that eHow is better than 99% of what's out there, that's ridiculous. Most of eHow's content is no better than the regurgitated crap that the rest of the sites got slapped down for.
