"...instead we are treated to these unnecessary so-called fixes that neither fix nor improve anything except possibly to a few tech employees."

A bit too personalized and hyperbolic for my taste...and you can be confident (IMHO) that ACOM is not in the altruistic business of the care and feeding of programmers. What they are in the business of is developing (as are all for-profit organizations) a more cost-efficient means by which they can deliver a product they have to offer with the same degree of customer satisfaction (or hopefully higher) they have come to expect as reflected in their active subscription base...a subscription base now dominated by junkologists, not genealogists (professional or otherwise).

Was the old attachment system perfection? Of course not. Will the new system be perfect? Fuhgeddaboudit...and its latest incarnation is, instead, a step backwards...not only in reliability but, perhaps even more importantly, in adherence to the traditional sourcing tenets of genealogy itself. "Crowd-sourcing" vs. "document sourcing". Frightening stuff...and the dust hasn't nearly settled on this philosophical struggle between traditional "genealogy" and the perceived necessities of the "bottom line".

Adam and Eve, here I come. It will be an interesting ride.
