  1. Hi Craig,

    The “New Editor” is what Yuku (the site of our original Pub) called reactive design.
    It is also the reason we closed the original pub.(It wiped out our site design. To be able
    to do that they turned admin of the Yuku sites over to Tapatalk which uses the RD platform.

    It’s goal is to (1) manipulate space to accommodate ads and
    (2) to make sites more user friendly for cell phone screens.

    The result of these noble aspirations is that posts are made in blocks and all sites are
    essentially the same. Of course there are more favorable ways of looking at reactive
    design, but no matter how you filter it, it does not benefit the poet nor the poetry site.

    To be perfectly fair, I will give you the developers’ spin on it:

    “Organisations working in disparate domains are independently discovering patterns for building software that look the same. These systems are more robust, more resilient, more flexible and better positioned to meet modern demands.”

    The RD design circumvents innovation and creativity. It subjugates the ability for originality and it takes control of the site out of the hands of the individual site ‘owner’.
