I know people have complained about the "new" message boards, and I'm going to join in. Why can't the clunkiness be fixed? Just now I had to sign in twice (again). The old boards let you sign in and stay signed in. Oh yes, I know there's a check box to "keep me signed in" but it doesn't work. Is this as good as it gets? It's been almost a year hasn't it? What's the hold up? 

The old system would send you an email when someone responded to your message. No more.

There used to be spellcheck. No more.

The navigation is totally screwed up on the iPad---the breadcrumbs don't work. Plus, it doesn't resize in portrait mode. And on the iPhone--the text does not resize in portrait or landscape mode, so you have to scroll to read. And, it's incredibly s-l-o-w on all devices.

C'mon, iVillage, let's step it up.

Yep, and seeing how poorly the technical part of this site has been for an extended length of time, it makes me regret not having gone into computer science or web design. Because apparently, a tech person or consultant - whatever is being used - can get paid for allowing the same glitches to continue for a long time on a site, yet not actually have to figure out how to fix it.
