This thread is the perfect example about the effect panda has had on webmasters....Matt Cutts has not said anything valuable here.
I came to the conclusion years ago that Google's warped policy of "Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt" (FUD) is a kind of corporate mental illness. The elites in the Googleplex apparently get a thrill watching all the efforts & time that the rest of the world must waste trying to make them happy. Otherwise, they would actually SAY something. So their mouths move but they say almost nothing. As much as anything they remind me of a sick kid dropping a frog into slowly boiling water ~ it must make these little people feel hugely important knowing that they have the power to trigger tens of thousands of slow deaths (metaphorically speaking). I picture them high-fiving each other over their sushi, anytime someone in the Googlelounge smugly relates to the "gang" how confused & frustrated the members are at Webmaster World and other such forums. I have nothing but distain for their useless babble, and it will remain that way until they understand that this is not a game ~ people's family incomes are at stake. Stop treating us like little toys ~ cut out the spin and speak clearly, or not at all.
