StumbleUpon – The Art of Alienating Users

An interesting development: An argument against the SU upgrades quotes me at length, but is written for, and commented upon by, SEO types. When the author complains of quality Stumblers leaving the system, is she referring to the ones I miss, or the SEO quasi-spammers who were the topic of a previous complaint I made about SU’s declining quality? On the list of reasons I’m losing interest in this community, I would argue that the departure of my favourite Stumblers outranks the usability changes, though in some cases the latter is responsible for the former.

And just as a further mind-fuck, I seem to be alone in finding the latest SU iteration as an improvement over the v3 I lambasted in the post quoted by this article.
