We're supposed to build pages for site visitors not search engines. But Google is also requiring web publishers to build their sites in a way that Google believes is a better way, regardless of the impact on earnings, because Google feels it's a better experience for our site visitors. It feels like an over reach for Google to be dictating to publishers what their sites should be (panda friendly), but asking site publishers to not block JS/CSS files inches us even more in the direction of building websites for search engines. It just feels increasingly intrusive and presumptious to ask web publishers to alter how they build websites so that they are increasingly building websites for the search engines, not the site visitor.
