  • Apparently the designers of the new interface think I enjoy reading illiterate, obscene, xenophobic tweets about as much as I enjoy reading comments from other Wordnik users. This is not the case.

    Please do not put user comments and tweets on the same page. It is not an improvement. Perhaps the thought might have crossed your minds that some of us log into Wordnik as a way of getting away from the drivel that permeates the rest of the web. Now you're forcing us to look at the drivel anyway.
