You've lost me, StumbleUpon
« on: August 30, 2014, 02:03:28 AM »
I've been on SU for so long.  It used to be so great, with that cool blue-green logo and it's simple all-in-one checkbox category page that you could update in like a minute.  One of the most fun, most useful sites for exploring the net.

Then the dreaded redesign happened, what like a year or two ago?  They replaced the logo with that ugly red one, and replaced the simple category-picker with that dreadful, slow, eyesore with all the graphics and silly colors and dumb descriptions (Really, if the category is Achaeology do I really need a huge picture of the friggin Sphinx with a cutesy little quip "Do you dig archaeology? Marvel at Roman artificts and more!").  And I swear one night I tried updating all my topics and it literally took like a half hour and I still wasn't sure what I'd selected and my eyes had gone blurry from all the graphics overload at that point.

But on top of all that, now you've just gone too far with those paid sites that you're sneaking into my stumbles like every 10 clicks.  Lately you're force feeding me over and over this site called "Makers" which is some hardcore feminist site.  Dude I lived in San. Fran. and Berkeley for like 15 yrs, trust me I've heard it all and do not need that shoved at me when I'm just trying to Stumble my harmless little sci-fi category or whatnot.

So from now on ... FU, SU!

Agree, used to be a blast, now a blister on the tingly parts.

Ok now I've really had it.  My new hate for Stumble has just intersected with my hate for the latest popups.

Confession time, I didn't really give up yet.  I tried, but I kept nervous-twitching myself back to that dreaded Stumble button.  I hate you Stumble, but your siren call still beckons to me.  This is a dysfunctional relationship now.   :-[
