Comments on: Counterparties http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/04/counterparties-48/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Felix Salmon http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/04/counterparties-48/comment-page-1/#comment-9636 Sun, 06 Dec 2009 17:29:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/04/counterparties-48/#comment-9636 axg, flattered as I am by the implication that I’m important enough to be consulted on a major redesign of the entire reuters.com site, it’s not the case. But what I can say is that there turn out to have been rather more glitches in the blog part of the redesign than anybody had anticipated. We’re working on it, and fingers crossed all your issues (and many other problems too) will have been addressed shortly.

They think we’ll get used to it, but most probably won’t bother. Time will tell.

regarded as a good thing. What are your thoughts on
reuters removing this?

to comment at all on the changes/degradations to your blog:

– broken formatting, even small blogs such as your
link blogs require a click through to see in their entirety (I suppose this is subjective how bad this is but to me it seems a big negative.)

– no comments without creating a Reuters account! Huh?
Did you think you had a serious comment-spam problem before?, because if not why are you doing this and do you
really think this will help you?
– many, many, seconds to load thanks to all your new but not so technically-with-it external links. On some of the eitht OS/browser combinations I have tried there is even one (firefox under linux) where I’ve found you unreachable. “gigya.com” seems the primary but not sole cuprit. Is there a QA process? Does this process consider
download/refresh times?

I assume you were involved in approving these changes.
I would appreciate at the very least your opinion on them. Forgive me if you’ve offered this and I’ve missed it. Nevertheless, at this time you are nearly too annoying to access to be worth it for me. Am I alone?
