Why don't you test changes before foisting them on people?
We test most changes for a month or two ourselves before deploying them.
My blog has been useless for days now, and there has been no response from WordPress.
You have received a response from us, please continue that discussion over there: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/links-65
I gave you my money for something that worked, changing it is stealing from me.
I'm sorry for the trouble, but you paid for a domain registration. That is what you received, and that is what you still have. http://alexjsquire.com/
There is no way that a constantly changing format is preferable to a solid, reliable one.
If we didn't make updates, you'd be stuck with the same old thing from 2005. No widgets, no tags, no video embeds, no custom domains, 7 themes, etc. If you want a WordPress installation that is never updated, I recommend managing your own. http://wordpress.org/
After millions of people abandoned MySpace when it became useless through endless tampering, why would anyone follow that business model?
We have never followed MySpace's business model. This is a blogging service, not a social network.
I've lost two days to this problem so far, will I be compensated in any way?
I'm sorry for the trouble, but you paid for the domain, and that has continued to function properly. If you'd like this problem to be resolved, please return to your original thread: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/links-65
By the way, Blogger still works like Blogger, and tumblr still works like tumblr.
Yes, except for the major functionality and design upgrades that they went through over the past 7 years, just like us. They also run into the same bugs, just like us. That's part of what running a live system is all about. You can test something with 120 employees all you want, but once you release it to (currently) 42,164,656 users, someone is bound to find something you missed.
