form over function

Do any of you guys use evite? I've just spent the last hour making an invitation that was far more complicated than it should've been. I haven't been there in a few months and wow, they've revamped the entire system. It's annoyingnow; all flash, and no substance. I just want to make a simple online invitation. And I'm not saying that before their system was perfect, but now it's just plain aggravating. I felt like I was fighting the system the whole time, just to get a really basic page thrown together. Lame.

This same thing happened with Frappr a month or two ago. I just don't understand how some websites can do these big cosmetic redesigns and not realize that they are giving up their functionality.
