If Avos/Delicious have given any response to the criticism, I have yet to see it, which I think is probably a bad sign. (There was a pretty broad and definite DO NOT WANT response, it happened on a weekday, not a weekend like some past fandom kerfluffles which explained the time it took to be addressed at all, at least in part. So I think there should have been some very public response of SOME kind by now.) All I've seen so far is a laughably back-patty post about how they've had so much feedback! And people were making stacks! I BET they've had feedback, man.
There's some things I can't figure out how to do on pinboard yet. (Like delete an entire tag all at once, since delicious randomly added some has: tags to a bunch of stuff.) But so far I think I'm pretty happy with it. And the siteowner is fandom friendly - actively trying to entice fic writers over and looking at suggestions fandomers are making, specifically. (There's a post here with a googledoc linked with suggestions, for the interested. Also the migration googledoc, which I am too afraid of messing up to edit. And the most comprehensive link round up I've seen so far is here, from somnolentblue.) I don't really mind the one time fee, but I hesitated initially because it was a BLIND fee, as in no free trial first. But it seems well worth it to me, so far.
I'll keep reading around and watching for developments, but I think even if delicious rights themselves, I'll stick at pinboard and possibly just backup to delicious.
Completely unrelated to the delicious shenanigans, but is anyone up for a Beta read on an X-Men: First Class fic? Charles/Erik, non-explicit.
