I despise the site, but there are still stories I follow on it. But there are a few writers I know who've left it because it's such crap now.
I bought a premium membership with years-worth of "gift points". For whatever reason, the story reading page has been changed, and works way worse than before. But at least chapters aren't behind time walls.
I have a pipe dream of creating a no-frills replacement site, but don't have the time.
