I went in and looked at it myself, then read what Dave posted on Sifry's Alerts .
More of the same old same old from Sifry and company. Another complicated and time-consuming little doo-hickey that a blogger needs a degree in computer science to figure out. More codes to paste and play with when all one really wants to do is write and be read...
Sifry left a little message on my Blake Rhodes post. I emailed him yesterday, explaining that many bloggers that come into the blogosphere on a daily basis don't necessarily have the computer savvy to figure out how to use Technorati's features.
Why is it that all the new Technorati features and tools are far more complicated to use than the blogging software that supports most blogs?
The whole scheme is becoming more complicated than is necessary, and, at the moment, seems to only benefit those who have the time to figure things out, or the friend who can figure it out for them.
If the sorting/categorizing/tagging and listing schemes get more complicated, more and more of us will be buried under the rubble of tags.
Right now, it looks like another scheme to make us chase our tails, and keep theirs very, very long.
