Google Search Quality Improving Or Not?

A WebmasterWorld thread has several complaints about Google's search quality. Tedster sets the tone with his post:

In our Google Updates and SERP Changes thread, scottsonline made this observation: "Day to day I won't find the same results in google and am actually bookmarking things again"

Me too - and rather than take the original thread into a side topic, I thought I'd start a dedicated thread.

This is one of the most troubling sign for me about Google in the present moment. For a long time I noticed that Google was so good I barely needed to use browser bookmarks at all. But now I definitely do, or else I lose track of information that I value. And no, I don't find that Bing is any better for this. I wish it were.

I don't know if it's the result of any one change or if it's a combination effect. But I do know that I feel like a valuable tool has been trashed.

Is anyone else in the same boat?

Then you see complaint after complaint. So I figured I'd run a poll below and ask you to take it and then bug everyone you know to take it.
