Every time a Google update is announced, people freak out.
And every time an individual's website goes down in ranking, that person freaks out and makes accusations of new Google updates that may or may not even exist, and everyone else freaks out about it.
From my perspective, people seem desperate for reasons to freak out. Almost as if they are eagerly waiting for their life to be screwed up just so they can go online and rant about how much of a victim they are and how evil Google or someone else is.
I wish there was some kind of filter mechanism that I could enable in these forums, just a "Click here to disable Google rant threads" button. That would be nice.
