Agreed. While we lose sleep, money and jobs, I picture Google's veteran engineers playing Nerf darts or World of Warcraft while they let the new guys prove themselves with algorithm tweaks.
I've said it before, but it really seems like Google hired a bunch of interns to tweak the algorithms for a college capstone project. They have lost grasp of what made them great.
For Google the upside to worse organic SERPS is more relevant PPC ads.
