The lack of on topic debate has made me wonder if times have changed. When I first came on iVillage and this board a long time ago (10 years or so. My dd is now 11 and she was a newborn if I remember correctly), this board was hopping. In the late 90's and early 0's, in the days of venture capital, investment banking, flipping real estate, ecommerce, when cash and jobs were plentiful, was the Sah argument more relevant? Now, with a recession and high unemployment are the Sah advocates deafeningly quiet?

There just seems to be a lot fewer of the "How can you leave your precious babies with strangers?" type posts even before the great upgrade debacle. Or maybe village just isn't as popular as it was.

Is it me or do all the posts in the preschool thread respond to Harmony's original post? I know the mobile app does that, but is everyone using that now??

I miss the outline view where you could see how the posts fit into the discussion.

Ugh, I hate the mobile app...although I must say, it has helped me to develop a teensy amount of appreciation this lousy format!

That has to be one of my larger pet peeves on the new format.

I still have the question....who the heck beta tested this format?
