    Here's the thing: this isn't some guys coming along svbtle and thinking "this is a good way to focus on the important things (re: administration) and to build a network". They didn't create minimalistic blog network.

    What they did, is they copied everything, mainly visual things, and ignored the core idea (minimalistic blogging network) they wanted to build alternative to. They took only visuals, and they got them wrong! (I know what helps minimal design to keep focus on main content: configurable large colorful area used as sidebar. Brilliant!)

    TL;DR: I don't understand why there is anyone, who is pro- these guys. Instead of building good open alternative, they've builty shitty knock-off.
