The MS blogs were recently upgraded from .Text to Community Server. Unfortunately, the new Community Server has regressed some key functionality, like the ability to post certain formatted text from Word (via filtered html), Word Pad (rtf), Visual Studio, Outlook, or Internet Explorer. Now with CS, all blog entries have to be formatted via some web control. I can deal with that insane restriction for simple posts like this one; but it's a real problem for most of the content I blog about. This has made it prohibitively expensive for me to blog. I've already had two blog entries that the new CS has been unable to publish.

I'm trying to find some sort of workaround; but I think my blogging days are on ice until then.
