Google is changing and in my opinion if you aren't the source of the product or service then you don't deserve to rank well above the source.
I'm sure I will get flamed for stating the above but before you do so try and think of this from a google quality of results perspective.
To conclude IMO , resellers , directories and affiliates do not feature in googles view on how their search engines produce quality results for their users regardless as to whether or not they have great content.
You seem to think all resellers are bad. There are countless manufacturers that aren't the source and won't sell to anyone but their resellers so your logic is flawed in thinking google is providing a public service
how would Google send those people to you but not people who would convert?
