Continuing the discussion from Tangents: how off-topic is too off-topic?:
Hey, what was the design there, anyway? Editing my Gmail titles is a daily habit for me, and I was irritated when they made it so much more difficult a few months ago. The only thing I find more irritating about this newer version of Gmail is when I open a particular Gmail reply chain with several (that is, more than five) recipients and I want to change a bit of the content (sending the same kind of email notification about a different episode of the TV series I work on, for example), which is doable but a pain in the ass now, and I want to remove a chunk of the recipients with the ol’ highlight & delete. Of course, now I can’t do it that way; I have to manually remove each recipient by clicking each x one at a time.
Who thought this was a useful change?
Anyway, it’s Google’s problem, not yours. Just thought I’d ask if you knew the thinking behind the change you mentioned, since it’s not obvious to me. My father-in-law works at Google, so I should probably bitch at him about it.
Heh… it occurs to me that this post is too off-topic for the “How off-topic is too off-topic” thread. I remain perfectly in character!
