They are being allowed to do a lot of this BECAUSE we haven't proactively pushed for any two-way communication.
Uh, actually we used to HAVE that kind of communication, many years ago, and Google walked away from it.
And if you think "Google bashing" is the reason they walked away, it's just not. Google is going to communicate with us exactly as much as serves their needs and their purpose. Google has very recently begun to improve their communication with us in some small ways, but only ways that serve them.
If you want Google to dialog with us, you need to convince them THEY will benefit from it. Believe me, if Google felt they were getting a lot out of a dialog with us, a few negative posters would NOT deter them.
