It should be pretty obvious that the majority of Newsviners really don't like the new format. It is equally obvious that the powers that be have absolutely no intention of changing it back. In fact, they write in the box above the public discussion:
"In the public discussion, there is very little moderation, no tracking, no threaded replies, and none of the niceties of Nation Discussions."
So their intentions are very clear. The big question is, how will all of this ultimately affect Newsvine. Will it go under, as most companies do when they ignore the wishes of their customers or will it do even better? What do you think?
