Changes at LJ? Thanks, Loads. (sigh)

I don't use my old 'LiveJournal: Continuing to drive me crazy on a regular basis' icon much these days. First, it's based on the really old version of the site. And, second, it seems like a waste of time. No, one of my reasons isn't that they've stopped driving me crazy -- because things have been worse, rather than better.

For those who might not know what I'm referring to, LiveJournal has a NEW RELEASE -- and we're being invited to Beta it.

Now don't get the idea that it's going to matter if you beta or not -- or if you offer feedback or not. It's been my experience that LJ will roll out changes even if the greater majority of the feedback they receive is negative. (Seen this before, over and over. Hell, I've been here since 2002, so...)

If you don't like the new version of Update, you'd better get past it -- because it's likely you're going to be stuck with it, no matter what.

I'd like to say that I believe they'll give us an option to select old or new -- but I don't believe that. I think both will be there for a time, then they'll force everyone to change. Wow! That sounds a lot like Facebook, by the way! But it's not like LiveJournal doesn't have a history of unpopular code changes, so...

I must have replied to at least half a dozen comments that were shared on the above-lined entry. Or more, for all I know. The whole thing is highly annoying...
