I am seeing a mess in the Google search results, seems eHow and About.com have pretty much taken over Google results. Seeing lots of double and triple listings for these sites, they are on the first page with double listings, then on second page of the same search.

About.com is full of "thin" pages, I am guessing you put them and eHow on the same "good" side as wikipedia, or this would not be happening.

Its is very wrong that you guys come in like gangbusters and just rip through peoples hard work,lives and money.  

Ever heard of incremental changes?

Once you roll this out to the other countries it will do me in and I will be out a very lot of time, effort and money, just another day at the office for you guys.  

It is devastating to put so much time, effort and money into something that you guys deem as "good" for so long then all of the sudden opps we changed our mind just kidden your site really sucks and were going to lay the hammer on you.  Pretty nasty and ugly trick you played on 1000's of innocent people just trying to make it in this world.

I hope you guys reverse the dials just a but, a little of the traffic lost would be better than none.  

Can you guys give some sort of update as to our fate? Can you throw a Dog (webmasters) as bone?
