old search results
I think both sides in this have some valid points, but its not like they are going to agree on it anytime soon.
However, what this points out is that google's search is not actually that good, i am always getting old results.. pages from 4 or 5 years ago and when you are searching about IT matters eg. looking up an API or how to use a particular python function, old forum posts and outdated code get really tedious.
Shouldn't google be saying "this is not an issue because we have now factored DATE, into our search" ... something that seemingly has eluded them for years.
