I feel very strongly that WordPress has pillaged what was a great bloggers site. For a hosting site it does little to encourage feedback on its proposed and the enforced changes. Pillage of the cruellest kind has now been made to the Reader where photographic blogs have images destroyed doing little to encourage any passing blogger to look more deeply.
Many complain but when the critical comments get too frequent they shut down the page.
Here are three links posted since the changes (and there are many more by many other regular bloggers) please click and read and please WordPress listen and react.
With friends like WordPress who needs enemies.
