New Go?

New Go? Either Go.com really, really sucks, or I am just unable to find where the "new" go.com design is residing. And why doesn't c|net ever put related links in their articles? Do they assume I will just stay within c|net all day long?

And for another example of a turd morphing into a bigger piece of crap -- xoom.com just merged with snap.com and became the iNBC portal.

the new go reminds me of the new AltaVista -- lots and lots of links on the main page.

They finally realized that their biggest competative advantage is being part of Disney, check the font on the new logo. The previous was horrible, I can't believe they stuck with that patch-job-after-a-lawsuit logo for so long.

I hate the all-black header, too. *hiss hiss, scratch*

That's not the new Go. That's the same old Go.

The new GO logo looks like a cross between the Disney logo and the ESPN logo. Something done by the computer graphics people at Conan O'Brian's "If they mated" segment.

I believe this is the "new, improved, more intuitive" Go:

Um. Yeah.

Next up for the new Go.com: Disney creates a pair of squabbling sidekicks for the site...

The new Go.com looks like the new Espn.com.

What's the deal with that ESPNesque large non standard ad on top of the right column?

I've been chatting at GO (or WBS in the good ol' days) since 1996. The ad is undoubtedly evil, and gives the impression of clean family values, but is really run by those evil fascist Disney freaks. The worst thing are the rules - you can get kicked off for no apparent reason, you can't swear, can't post "questionable" pictures. Since ESPN is now part of GO, ads are shown on ESPN during NASCAR races, etc. I always wondered why there were all these idiots in the chat room all of a sudden...the ads are the reason!

Remember when people used to think that this page was cluttered?
