Free Form MyDD Technical Gripes

I'm really getting pissed off at the new format changes that went into effect for MyDD about a year or so ago. Ok, well it seems like a year....
First, I can't reply to any comment. There is no threading anymore, for me. I use IE 8, and when I reply - the screen locks up.
Second, editing and creating diaries is S L O W - there is some kind of external editor being used, and its always cranky and slow.
Third, the organization and layout of the page is awkward. In web design there is a 'golden square' at the right lower section of your browser. This 'golden square' is where you can resize your window and still have mouse focus on almost any device. Well, MyDD looks awful on my smaller devices - and the diaries are in the exact opposite corner - harder to reach and just plain awkward. Diaries used to be a fun part of this blog.
Overall, I really don't like the big banner ads, slow response, and awkward layout. Is anyone else in this boat? Am I alone?
MyDD used to be kind of a more 'craigslist' type format, it loaded fast, there was great threading and diary.
I vote we RETURN to the old format completely.
