So far I think WebPixie's observations are closest to the root of what this change is all about but I think it's way too early to know for sure. I need to back away and reflect on WebPixie's thoughts.
But more than anything I need to back away for the day so I don't spam this thread. I've realized I'm sitting here using the wrong mental tool to assess this -- my emotions. Logic needs to prevail to climb out of it. Also my apologies to the community for my outburst in msg:4501599 -- the desire for revenge is a very lowly quality and accomplishes nothing -- it was an emotional outburst.
If I discover anything new that will add any value to the discussion I'll jump back in otherwise I'm just going to follow along for clues. Thanks WebPixie for your insight, it'll help.
