I don't really see how the new format really affects anyone, except perhaps those who just don't like change, and didn't hang around long enough to get used to it?
I do see why it affects ME. And I really do like change.
But change to me means it has to change for better. And I do not see what is better in this new format.
I.E. - Can I find what I said by Christmas, two years ago, easily? NO, I can't!
Can I find what you replied to one of my questions, six or eight months ago? NO, I can't!
Can I send you a PM asking you some stuff that are not worth, or not interesting for anybody else to read? NO, I can't.
I could go on and on..
But I do post less and less.
Maybe because there are less and less people interested in what I post...
