The new site appears to substitute a Facebook-like activity stream for the earlier topic-based sections. It also includes a number of mandatory new sections and comprehensive monitoring of user behavior. Reaction from the user community has been energetic, if not at all positive.
What other alternatives exist for users who aren't satisfied with the new design?
