I hate your new format.
But "hate" is not a nice word. Let me rephrase: I deeply, violently dislike it, navigating through it in ways that explore new shades of frustration and hopelessness, my aesthetic soul shrivelling like burnt hair whenever I see its vast unused amounts of dead white space and its hospital-waiting-room color scheme and its infinitely useless button links that do things like "Insert Jump Break!" I do not need a jump break. I need a workable text window that fills more than 1/3 of the screen. I need clarity.
Please get on that. There's a great site you can use as an example of elegance and user-friendliness. It's called Blogger circa 2010.
