R.I.P. Google. Next PLEASE

Both yesterday and Today, I was unable to find what I was looking for 
with Google... I've been noticing more and more, but the last two days 
I've just been pissed.

Here is the twist... it's not because Google didn't know about it... 
it's because Google would only list pages and pages and pages of people 
selling stuff. Catalog entries, web shops, million entry sites all 
googled. Lots of it that I can't wrap my brain around how the searches 
were matching the results, user comments I suppose. Many with URL's so 
cluttered with &'s and ='s that it's a surprise google even holds them.

Apparently in the last month(?) Google has started to search every 
catalog site out there, and has filled up on useless data.

So who out there is after google, google has clearly not only sold out 
but also swallowed a poison pill.
