Re: No change
- The site owners can change the site any way they please. It is their site.
- Visitors to the site can decide that the site does not meet their needs, is too irritating to look at, makes their eyes bleed, whatever and not come back.
That is not 'flouncing off into the sunset' it is exercising choice.
However I think the general tenor here is that:
- we presume that the site owners want to maintain (or even grow) the number of visitors to the site.
- most posters find the site content DOES meet their needs but the site is making access too difficult/irritating/whatever.
Said posters have tried to convey this to the site owners (with varying grades of bile/sarcasm/pleading/threats of violence) so that all parties can come to some accommodation that meets everyone's need.
However I, and others judging from the posts, are detecting a subtext of, 'we think it is fine and we don't know what you are moaning about' from the site owners.
They keep referring to the 'shock of the new' as though IT people are the most hidebound in the world and seem to be unable to grasp the 'shock of the crap'.
As others have pointed out; in terms of comments alone this is the single most important story on this site and has been for over a week! More commentards are united on this subject than has ever happened before.
The site owners can choose to let the site wither in terms of page views/ad revenue/etc. and visitors can choose to visit no more.
