@goodjohnjr, it is most definitely worth letting people know how you feel and where you think things have gone wrong, or need to change, or could be made better. We all have a voice and we all have the right to use it (although AutoMATTic has ultimate control and can silence us if they wish).
I've taken part in many, many discussions here about all of the controversial changes AutoMATTic have thrust upon us, and I will probably continue, but I also realize that in the end it is not likely to make a difference, especially if key people on the penthouse floor have decided something is the best thing since sliced bread.
My position on most of these has been, fine, just give us the option to opt out or turn something off since one size never fits all. Sadly on key things we didn't choices.
Well said TheSacredPath, I agree that there should be an option to enable and/or disable most of these things, and we might not make much of a difference in the end; but I say, keep on trying, until the end and/or while you are still on/using/et cetera WordPress. ;)
At least then we can at least know/say that we tried, and who knows; maybe your/our efforts will start a stand alone complex. :D Hehehe
Thank you again TheSacredPath for commenting and for your continued efforts to help the WordPress Community. :)
