I disagree. The nature of a search engine has NEVER been about providing content. There is a reason why Google's home page is empty - that's all they have. What you are describing is often referred to as "content scraper".
I 100% agree with this statement. A proper search engine should allow people to search using operators that will find the specific results that they need. Google decided this is not a good business model so they prevent or discourage this in favour of results that will improve their bottom line.
There is no way that this can right. Page and Brin should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to happen to what was once a cutting edge product.
