I still hate the new design and here's why. . .

There is too much white and other wasted space. Why does the site have to have huge fonts and all sorts of extra unused space. No, it shouldn't be so crowded that it's ugly and hard to read, but you've gone way too far in the other direction. I've seen other boards that look good and are easy to use, so I know for a fact that you can pack far more text onto a screen and have it be far more readable than this is. Is there actually anyone who likes the way this looks? Go look at No,it's design wouldn't work perfectly for you, since it doesn't lend itself to threads; each board is a single ongoing conversation, but it looks good and is easy to use. They did a GOOD job of creating a readable site. You did not.

You've spent all this time designing a fancy, shmancy page that I guess is supposed to look like a page sitting on a desk or something, and the search function still sucks. Any other site on which I do a search can handle some more advanced functions, yet you, supposedly oh so good at this website thing, still can't let me search "spice market" so that it brings up only instances of that phrase, not every damn post with the word spice or the word market in it. Annoying, annoying, annoying.

Why does the page extend past the right margin of my screen? On the page I'm on right now, the ads on the right are cut in half. I have no actual interest in the ads, so I don't much care about that, but I do mind when the right post column on the list of boards is cut in half.

Why are you so bad at this?

I used to read this site regularly and post sometimes. Now, I hardly ever read it. I hate that you've ruined it for me.
