Wow, that's an obnoxious reply.
WP is not a "monoplogy" - monopoly, I believe you mean. There's Blogger, LiveJournal, Tumblr and a number of other free blogging hosts out there.
Yes, other free hosts offer similar or same services, and in some cases, more than WP. For example, one of my blogs is hosted by Blogger, and Blogger users have the ability to customize and/or create their own templates, whereas free WP bloggers cannot.
Just because it's free means our opinions are worthless? I don't think anyone is calling for a democracy, by any means, but WP bloggers, as its primary users, are probably the best source to get a baseline for whether a new feature is or isn't working.
Clearly, the comment change and Topics change are not.
It sounds like you're getting annoyed by the comments here. I'm trying to give you the benefit of doubt; maybe you should take a step back and let some other volunteer moderate the forums for awhile.
