Negative sentiment

A brief selection of twitter threads expressing negative sentiment over the recent MSDN blog migration, where they left redirects intact for some moved content, but "orphaned" much more – those all return 404, say the page has been disabled, or drop you on a generic front page or category page. Not exactly a good user experience. Lots of gold in these threads (please click through and read entire conversations); they help illustrate why nobody else should want to follow through with a similar process.
