LJ took away the option to find users that had the most common interests with you. I kind of liked that feature. I wonder why they took it away.

I liked that feature too. Instead they now have one that you can modify your interests based on someone else's. That's kinda interesting.

yeah, kinda interesting, but it depends on how you view your interest list. I want to come up with my own interests unbiased by other people's interests, and then see how it compares. I don't want to read a list of interests off of a list and then pick one that i have in common with someone. I do that occasionally, but i come up with my own interests a lot more often. so that new function doesn't do much for me.

I believe...
That it's because something was broken with the Interests search... the "magic number" apparently always listed this one guy as the number 1 most compatible with everyone...

Also, with the size of the interests lists that people were generating, the SQL query to match people up by interests and such was killing their db boxen. Dunno if you've noticed, but LJ has been moving a lot snappier since they dropped it...

(all above are referenced to some ambiguous post I saw somewhere about LJ changes...)
