Someone at Yahoo spent valuable time to change the MB format and it is terrible.
It is terrible, Yahoo has made several changes since 2000, each and every change has made the format worse. I hope yahoo one day decides to stop fixing something that wasn't broke to begin with.
One step forward, three steps backward, that's the yahoo motto
Bring back the old boards and kick out the whiners.
I don't understand why you think they are so terrible? Before you had thousands of replies of just "bumping"they were basically trashing the boards, you couldn't find anything without endless clicking to get the last message! Now, you can find information (much) more easy now. I don't know why anyone would be having trouble at all, it's straight forward how to use them. They are much less "cluttered" now as well. I hope they DON'T change them back!
I agree with this comment. I prefer the old boards in every way.
