It certainly makes it difficult to have a free discussion about any items that they raise.
I don't know the Google ranking system - and as far as I know, it's Google's intention that everyone regard that system as a "black box" - but I'm guessing that the number of people deciding to go directly to a site is what makes that site look important. If everyone reading a site always arrives there by way of another site (like ours), then they end up looking less like "where people habitually go for the information they need" and more like an afterthought.
