While I have not charted your tenure here (I am not the "stalker," that John T. might paint me), you missed the "good old days." However, those are now history.
You came around, about the middle of the Jive "revolution," and managed to get by, plus contribute greatly, to various product forums. [Thank you for that.]
Now, we are all in the same boat, and someone grabbed the helm, and has run us into the rocks.
There ARE many threads, similar to yours here, in various product forums, and even a few in the Video Lounge.
We are now part of a "social media" experiment, and it is not going well. There are "bells and whistles," lifted from Face Book (look where that is going), but nothing useful has been added, IMHO. Everything is much harder.
I have been around the Adobe forums, from when they were ONLY NNTP, and cannot recall a time, when things were this bad. Even when they went to HTTP only, things were still good, once some of the "old-timers" got their footing. Right now, it's like trying to run on "black ice," wearing leather-sole shoes.
Do not give up all hope. Many are working to get things working, but the going has been very slow.
Your input is greatly appreciated, and your comments respected. I wish that I could guarantee that things will get better, but I cannot. However, there ARE people working to improve things.
This "stuff" was engineered by 12 year olds, who only know social media, and nothing else. They attach value to things, with no value, but they seem cool, so they implemened them.
I feel your pain, and the best that I can offer is, declare "Wine-Thirty" a bit early, every day, until things get sorted out.
Good luck, and try to stick around. As they say, "this too shall pass."

Now I am confused... I thought you said I was stalking YOU !?!?!?
Let's just say we both enjoy full bodied red wine, and I will tilt a glass in your direction this evening
My toast is for the success of the repairs... and for the hope that they are not all we'll get.
I agree. I feel that things are getting "better," and just hope that this is not "as good as it gets."
I need to pop the cork on a Casablanca Valley white, and point the glass toward the South.
It looks very, very nice with my additionally blocked items now.
How have you done that?
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
By blocking unwanted elements with AdBblock PLus, by running a few scripts through Stylish, and another Firefox Add-On called No Color, which can be toggled on or off at will with a single click of a button on the status bar.
