Dear ProZ,

What sort of chemical substances were you inhaling when you did this, or are you having high school students design your website again?

I mean seriously, let's set aside the inexplicable/unthinkable/inadvisable/disgusting act of implementing this unannounced, did you seriously think that what you're doing here is something that 1. makes even the slightest sense, and 2. is comprehensible?

Hey ProZ, I have family members in social work, if your left hand and right hand are not on speaking terms with each other, I would be happy to refer you to mediation services, maybe relationship therapy? Because it looks like your right hand took out the family's life savings and put all of it into South Sea stocks, without telling the left hand.

Oh and while you're at it, could you kindly stop misrepresenting your ProZ Find (alpha) as the only search option? Here are two options on what it can reasonably look like, not your current version that hides the classic option under "Directories", giving the impression that ProZ Find (alpha) is the only way to search for translators:

Version A


Version B


Yes, I know people are more likely to listen when you are nice and unsarcastic. No, I am not in the business of rewarding my kid every time he or she does not urinate in public.

We won't get out of this with any resemblance of sanity. Not a single one of us.

Jared is apparently trying to straighten things out Jul 19, 2018

The same issue was brought up in another thread, and he said he is on it.
