This website, which used to be easily scannable and usable is now a cluttered mess of white space. The top half of the screen is taken up with the weather, ads and a masthead, the scrolling is difficult, navigation is counterintuitive and in general it is hard to read. There are many lovely blogs about being a mom, featured prominently but it is hard to find the actual news. A sad case of fixing something that wasn't broken.
The one thing that is broken, anonymous commenting, is unfortunately not fixed -- however, the general decline of the site to a state of visual chaos will probably drive all but the most determined lunatics away.
This new website is unreadable and unusable. On the plus side, it will drive all the crazies away.
