Moderators and others

I have been moving and computerless for a while. I come back and there is this whole new "Forums" page.

1. Weird font and now so much of the right side of the page taken up by ads? Finding it not so easy to read.

2. What the heck is the whole "like a post" "don't like a post" stuff??? What the ?? This isn't FB, It is a site prone to have opinions put forth - thank goodness. I am horified that there are now "like, don't like" buttons to push. And what EXACTLY do you intend to do with such nonsense? There are a lot of the uneducated seeking information - both good and bad - and no one knows who has knowledge re the "question" or does not but now if you don't like the answer? Which may be from the very "educated" ? One hits the "don't like" button? WHat purpose is this serving? Who benefits from this?

Come on - how ridiculous. Let's not make the forums "less" informative due to "opinion"
