This might be on the fringe, but at least it is positive:
Has anyone heard any of this? Is the writer making this stuff up?
thanks for posting Andrew, I hope he's right.
Geez, why did they have to put the "Curtains for the US" article at the top of the list below the article?! I don't even want to read that one after I get to feel good for a change!
I guess you can only dump so much smelly plastic and rubber on the world before it says "Enough!" Seriously, ever get something made in China and all the parts are wrapped in plastic that off-gasses so strongly you feel like its going to knock you out? Can't be healthy to have that crap in your house! Add to that the leaded paint issue, tainted food products, poor general quality, ripoffs of design, no respect for copyright laws, and people are beginning to see that these products are not always such a bargain.
Remember when you were a kid and Mom and Dad told you stories about Santa Claus? This is equivalent but on an adult level. Nothing but a pipe dream! Story is probably straight out of Rick Perry's presidential campaign. Look at history of the world. Each country had its chance to be in power one time or another. From China to Spain to England and France to Greece, etc etc. America's top spot days are over. Canada or Brazil are the next world power.
What happened to Land8 redesign? The "forum" portion is what most returning people come in here for and that has been reduced in viewable size and space. The gallery section never change images and therefore becomes less interesting over time. There's no more individual design of your page anymore! How boring that everyone's personal page is identical. How about if Landscape architect's design spaces the same and use the same trees and shrubs throughout a project? Not a fan of the new graphic format.
What a Debbie downer, I don't know that there is one positive thing in your comment
If you’re looking for something positive from Cara, you’re looking in the wrong place. But, I have to agree with her on the re-formatting. It seems like the biggest draw to Land8 was buried in the pull-down menu. If I were seeing the site for the first time, after I was done yawning, I probably wouldn’t be curious enough to find the discussions.
