This is starting to sound like the late 90s and early 00s when the talk on WebmasterWorld started leaning toward Google and away from Altavista, yahoo and the rest.
IMO WebmasterWorld and its webmaster members helped build Google. Its time to let go of google as their path is headed in a different direction.
They have throw us under the bus. Start promoting Bing, Yahoo or ?SE? as we did google in their early years.
Some SE will fill the void google is creating' unless they change. I believe this community with its members and new ownership can play a big part lifting up a SE to do that. I don't believe SEO or Organic Search is ready to dye.
It just seems we're running circles trying to please G and they just keep changing the rules.
