I think I have posted about as many messages or replies on this site as anyone during the last several months. I did it because I felt like I may be helping someone and I was returning a favor because this site provided an untold amount of help for me during the trials and tribulations I went through with my pacemaker. In addition as I gathered information for my reply, I usually learned something for my own benefit. But this new format will drastically reduce my participation if it doesnt bring it to a complete halt. Ive heard of people that wanted to wear a belt and suspenders for security, but this new format seems to want a belt and two pairs of suspenders. Like many of you, logging on has been a trip with an uncertain ending for me. In addition, there are a few more little tricks up its sleeve which I find are not to my taste. One, is after I finally get a message ready to be posted I am sent to a feature that resembles a Chinese water coloring book, where I get to translate the characters into English and transfer them. There has been more than once I found the characters impossible to translate and just gave up. Another peeve I have is, I usually break my messages up into paragraphs. Not because I am such a stickler for correct prose, but because I know it makes the text easier to read and understand. No more paragraphs on this site. You may put your message together as you wish, and apparently as lengthy as you wish, but it all becomes one paragraph when published. Folks, I know I am looking a gift horse in the mouth when I criticize anything about this site. I am aware the site is free to one and all, but so is my time which I spend posting messages or replies. I also know all the changes were done in the name of good s24softlineintentions, but I also think some of those changes were carried a step too far. (This will be my 7th try to post this message)

Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
