More clicks = more ad revenue.

Lots of complaints about having to click through more links to get where you want. More clicks means a busier site means CH can charge more for ads, because unless you use an adblocker, you see more and more ads, everytime you are re-directed. cha-ching!

CH users are making the mistake that CH cares about your user experience. They don't. Not anymore.

Remember the people (myself included) that complained when a lot of content went to video over text? More ad revenue, people.

That said, it's been a fun time, but it's crossed the line where it's clear that CH doesn't care about the regular posters that, truly, helped develop this site with a boatload of free content, discussion, reviews, etc.

So, for all of you who have been so helpful in the past, I've learned a lot, both good and bad- you've steered me right, and guided me away from the wrong.

And while this is a totally free site, and CH can do what they want, it's crossed the line from engaging experience to being commercially manipulated for me. So, see you in the lunch lines. :)
