    Am I right in thinking that Google is admitting here that they are not able to discern quality content?

    They tell us to build quality pages, then go and rank pages based to a great extent on popularity, and now they’re asking us for a hand weeding out low grade pages.

    Am I the only one that thinks this is ironic?

    They’ve got enough money. If they pay me, I’ll do their hand editing and cover the shortcomings of their algorithm.

    Why focus on reviews of consumer junk anyway? I would prefer a move that deranks crappy Wikipedia pages and puts articles of greater merit above them in the SERPs.
