... and I still hate it. FWIW, conservative-wingnut nonsense now seems to dominate, at least at this reading. Rather an odd turnabout for a site owned by MSNBC.
I'm not the most active user of NV, nor the least, but I am deeply saddened by this mess.
I did a bit of a google search on this situation and guess what...? Absolutely no-one outside the vine seems to have noticed. This whole mess is just a tempest in a tea-pot. Newsvine has always been a relatively small community, and it's apparently getting smaller by the moment. Were one of the major yack sites -- huffpo or kos -- make such a wildly unpopular change in format, the shouting would be heard round the world. Facebook in particular gets a lot of criticism -- and loses a fair number of users -- with each "improvement." As other, wiser heads have observed, Newsvine powers just don't give a damn. There's no going back to the "classic" look. Has it been taken over by Fox?
As other, more noteworthy members requested a few days ago... please tell me when things get back to normal.
Y'all have a great life!
