Tired of the Google Dance / Update Posts

Have you ever noticed that the number of posts about a "Google Dance" or "Google Update" start to increase as we get closer to the time period of about 30 days after the last "Google Update"? Well, yea, I guess you noticed because most forums are flooded with posts about this topic.

Post such as... "When do you think the next dance will take place?" "I think Google is dancing, I see changes in the SERPS." "Is Google Dancing?" "When will Google update again?" "I saw the PageRank value in the Google Toolbar fluctuate, there must be a PR update going on!" "When will the next back link update occur?"

We have all seen them, in fact, we see them too often. I am sorry if I offend anyone, that is not my intention. The purpose of this post is to plead with the forum goer to please be calm about the updates. I know everyone wants to be the first to spot the update and post about it in their respective forums but to venture a guess when the update will occur is simply that, a guess.

I have been involved with SEO/SEM forums for a long time, so maybe I am burned out. So please be more careful before posting about the Google Updates and Dances. We all love when they happen but let them happen before posting on them.
