While there are differences between the new and the old format, what's the big deal? When you upgrade to a new (or newer) car, aren't there differences there, as well? But you get used to those differences and move on, all the while enjoying the new (or newer) car.
What I'm having a hard time with is the thought that this new format is hurting someone's sales. I can't even begin to see a connection. The new format began right at the end of February. March, the first full month with the new format, was the best month I've had in a long time. Obviously, I don't think the new format hurt sales any. It would be far easier to say that the new format helped sales. But that's a ridiculous thought, too.
Saying the format change hurt sales sorta smacks of "the dog ate my homework".
There are lots of things that can affect sales figures, but message board format isn't on that list.
