Yes, yes, I know Yahoo email is nowhere near as important as Obamacare. But still, the situation is similar enough that I wonder if this sort of thing is a trend.
I’ve railed against Yahoo email’s “new, improved [sic]” version before. I’m not the only one; just Google “I hate Yahoo email” and start clicking. It’s a regular festival of rage. What’s more, Google all you want, but you won’t come up with many people defending it except the executives who designed and pushed it for whatever mysterious and unfathomable reasons of their own.
Here are the similarities to Obamacare, for what its worth:
They didn’t ask us if we wanted it.
It reduces options rather than adding them.
Each attempt to fix it has only made it worse.
People are rageful about it and no one’s listening who’s in a position of power; it appears they will champion it forever.
They have put out BS statements about how great it is and pretend to be responsive as they trash it further.
They do not listen to suggestions.
They lied about it to begin with, telling us this great change was coming.
If we liked our old email, we can’t keep it—although I have to say in Yahoo’s favor that, unlike Obama and the Democrats, they never promised we could keep it. In fact, they explicitly warned us we could not.
