can i ask what you would expect to see next if things are said to have improved?
we have been searching for life across the universe for decades yet dont even know what it really means. It becomes quite convenient to have a moving target to aim at, wherever you shoot, move the target there. What puzzles me is at what point, at what tweak did google decide they just made a backwards step for the sake of the future. I dont recall any announcements about this or that algo push will see things appear worse for now. I only recall each tweak being followed by an announcement of improvements.
