jhuddle55, I think you need to actually read
the thread before adding your 2c. In my opinion, I'm not 100% sure how Alan's response below can be considered an 'attack'..

If you actually did read the thread, you should have noticed that relevant answers were provided in multiple posts, so I'm just wondering aloud here how many times do one actually need to provide an answer before it's considered 'helpful' ?

In this case, there are certain accepted 'rules' for editing, which changes based on where you are located, so it's considered your DUTY as an editor
to familiarize yourself with said 'manual'.
Besides that, it also acts as a reference to a) make your life easier
, and b) to ensure you do not ruin the maps for everyone else by NOT following acceptable standard editing practices.
I thought the idea of the Wiki is to be a reference for all, so instead of reposting the same lengthy answers 100's of times over in the forums, show the users over to the Wiki where they can actually read the stuff themselves, and NOTE it.
You know, teach a man to fish... ? Teach a man to RTFM... ? Same thing as far as editing is concerned.
As far as my own 'expand your horizon' reference : The other quoted announcement on Google Search implementation
does also indicate the following :

There is no way of telling if he is one of the 10% or not, as it could also be affecting his/her results if he/she is. I can see results for Addresses outside of US that would previously NOT have returned anything, so it could be a wider audience already.
What is the use of people providing relevant links and answers if you STILL have to end up spoonfeeding the 'readers' ?
Who should actually give up in this case - dedicated community members that volunteer their free time to assist by providing answers that are flatly ignored, or the people that do not READ the stuff that is provided ?
