Changes to LJ 'Customize'

Has anyone been to the Customize page recently? (sigh)

This is bad. Now we who use S2 can't just go there and click that button that allows us to select the colors, text, etc., etc. for our layouts! We can't easily pick to eliminate the summary (ugh) and so on (like 'friends' for a community).

Is this supposed to drive us to have paid accounts, so we can use 'advanced' methods? (Hey, I'm paid, but I hate even trying to use styles! And I have no plan to bother trying, either.)

(And how many communities are paid?)

This is very upsetting and annoying, as far as I'm concerned.

And does anyone else find this a weird description:

Style System
LiveJournal provides two style systems that allow you varying control over how your journal is displayed:
S1 - For users who are comfortable with HTML and CSS.
S2 - For users who don't know HTML or CSS, or make only minor alterations.


Well, I changed to S2 mainly because it allows for tags -- which S1 does not. I happen to know both HTML and CSS, for the record, so that had nothing to do with my using S2! (And I thought LJ was all for us changing over to S2. With the above description, loads of people are likely to reconsider that...)

The odd thing is that I've been in favor of many of the recent changes at LJ. But not this one. No way.

Time for bed, on that note. It's been a hard day and I'm beat...
