Google Quality Raters Updated

I am not going to go through all the changes, there are tons, but Jennifer Slegg killed her weekend doing all that work. It is massive, so you can read here detailed summary of the changes.

Let's not forget, Paul Haahr of Google says this is actionable stuff in the raters guidelines.

Here is the full updated version.
