New flickr sucks!

Let me first say what I do like about the new flickr. Black background. Finally!!! A larger buddy icon. Great! I will update that soon. Everything else? Very bad decisions were made and they are screwing the Professionals here. The fact that my organized sets were clearly visible on the right made it easy for my viewers and clients to see the different categories and subjects of my photographs. I spent allot of time revamping that and after I did I got more hits on my photographs.
I really liked having a stream of individual photos one on top of each other rather than a messy and slow wall of all my photos. It is a poor choice.

The navigation is now as bad as the new itunes. I can't help but wonder if Yahoo hired the same folks? It's harder now to send someone a flickr mail.

Now seeing someone's comments is much more difficult. You have to scroll down more and flickr hides much of the comments and you have to open that up. Lame.

The vast majority of flickr beta testers said they hated it but talking heads high-up ignored that fact and still went through this crappy version of flickr regardless. Makes you wonder if they have our interest at heart?
I can go on and on but express yourselves here!
