Lol - No.
I am just hoping a crawl will help my site - pages are slowly getting added back to the index - not ranking but I am hoping that it will sort of snowball.
EG. Pages get listed, these pages are saying www.domain.com is homepage - Google believes these pages - Homepage returns :)

I do believe that Jagger3 is doing a good job, silently, on the canonical issues front. I could see that on my own homepage where the cache suddenly got updated as I posted previously.
I'd just like to say a big thank you for taking the time to keep us posted. Your posts have been very reassuring during this l-o-n-g update; particularly during the heavy flux times.
Results on .9 look pretty close to pre-Jagger for our area. The top 30 results for 15 phrases that I monitor have lost 17 spammy sites and gained a few really good sites that I haven't seen before.
All-in-all this appears to be a good update, although perhaps not on the dramatic scale that we initially anticipated.
In our area it appears to be a reshuffle of the same top-30 sites that appear on .9, plus 3 or 4 additional sites that don't exist on .9. I also noticed a few large sites with additional (indented) pages listed, whereas these additional listings don't appear on .9.
Apart from that, I don't see too much difference -- at least in the first three pages (I checked 5 phrases).
followgreg, got 3 out of 4 and can take immediate action on those. The other one (the network) will take a little more pulling, but I asked someone smart to look into it.
Well Googleguy, I have to say that you guys are back in my book - If Yahoo (which I hate for multiple reasons lol) and MSN would take user's feedback that seriously, the internet would be much cleaner.
I understand the need of "putting someone smart" on the network one you are talking about...quite a few other sites involved!
I had an excel spreadsheet with spam sites while ago, will see if I can find it back - lol sounds like I spend my time doing that - Internships at Googleplex spam dept? ;-) kidding ...
One thing Im now am a little scared of is are those now going to the sandbox or will they rank again after they get there PR back
Still Im currious why it took so long or what was the trouble.
