I have been happily blogging here since February. While I appreciate the work that has been done on the back end, there have been some changes made that is taking the pleasure out of blogging (and yes I've sent feedback):
1. Introduction of the tabs in the editor. The HTML tab does not work using Mozilla. I have had to install another browser (and learn how to use it) as the result. The old one worked just fine.
2. Edit comments only in HTML. I hate this. I really don't want to have to learn HTML fix things. Give me back the MCE editor here.
3. Stripping of HTML tags. I can no longer get the br tag to work. I put it in, and it gets stripped out.
4. Current spam removed from the Dashboard. Another move that I don't understand.
5. Recent comments widget. Hardcoded at 5, we've been asking for a more configurable widget for some time now.
Finally, there is the Norfolk tag which still is being interpreted incorrectly. (So you're always the bridesmaid)
Like I said, I appreciate the work that goes on here but I really would appreciate having back the comfortable, easy environment that existed when I came to wordpress.com.
