I heartily agree with @Brett_Tabke's #4273671. And I think the goodness of G's change should be determined by the relevance and availability of user search results, of course.
But, as ReadWriteWeb pointed out this AM, '[W]hat's "useful" is in the eye of the beholder and in the eye of Google engineers, one might argue.'
RWW published a chart showing (according to Sistrix) a drastic decrease in hits for e.g. suite101. [readwriteweb.com...]
With this, I'm disappointed. But who am I? I searched for some general info on other things, and found I had to scroll through several pages of results before finding a useful result. But who am I? G's idea differs from mine. And so it shall be...
[edit to add URL and wisecrack: A while ago, in a different context, G said something like, "Another SE is just a click away." (In other words, "Like it or lump it.") Me? Click! Bing.]
