    I love 22 Words but I cannot tell you how much this redesign stinks.
    It is seriously BAD.
    I HATE having to open another page to see each entry.
    Please please please change it back.
    I can’t stand it.
    It used to look clean and orderly and now it looks like an Internet junk yard.
    There is so much going on at the top, bottom, and sides of each page.
    Have I mentioned I hate the redesign?
    I hate the redesign.
