All I say - they won

  • long time already PM site has long responce time... it was periodically explained that this is due to some attacks which results in overloading the servers.
    Anyway, long responce make users of site to go away
  • all the stupid HTML tags also makes me sad... people all over the world has convenient typing system, and only here I must enter <p><br><i>stupidity
  • and now this password stealing - and they seemingly changed passwords of many users

sad, all is sad.
It is obvious that gods are devoting their own time and deserve applauses, not criticizing.
they do improvements, but these improvements are often too backward-compatible, or awkward-compatible.
And the result is - typesetting is awkward and obsolete, the site is succesfully attacked over a long time already...
enemies won :(

    I prefer the HTML markup and find it very convenient. What other typing systems are you referring to? BBCode?

    I don't mind occasionally having to reinvent a wheel; I don't even mind using someone's reinvented wheel occasionally. But it helps a lot if it is symmetric, contains no fewer than ten sides, and has the axle centered. I do tire of trapezoidal wheels with offset axles. --Joseph Newcomer

      I was referring to markup widely accepted in wiki. stripped HTML markup is hard to type.

      (yes, that anonymous person above was me :) )
