LI.ST, YOU ARE TOO LOUD

I've been shying away from reading and posting this week, or maybe two. Li.st feels noisy and chaotic, and I don't know why.
  1. I feel assaulted by the graphics.
    I try to be supportive of change, but scrolling through the full-screen pictures hurts my head.
  2. I keep missing my favorite writers' lists.
    I find them days or a week later, and I feel bad that I wasn't there to praise a list well done or toss in an idea, or maybe two.
  3. I know the update changed some things ... is that the reason?
    Is it just me?
  4. See what just happened? I chose a quiet picture and put it at the end of my list, and now it's popped up as like an album cover.
    I don't like it one bit, and I'm sorry I just contributed to the noise.
