There have been numerous protests from WP users about this change.
Many ask only that we are given the option of accessing the stats page as it is now, as well as on the HOMEPAGE.
According to WP: Note to Jetpack users: Your stats will still be available in your wp-admin dashboard. However, you may still enjoy viewing your stats on WordPress.com.
If this is possible for Jetpack users why can WP not make it an option for the rest of us and allow us to choose, instead of treating us like children who know no better and must be dragged in to doing it their way.
WP need to demonstrate some respect please for the people who keep this site alive with their blogs !!!

Please do – the more noise people make…actually considering the replies WP have given to date on their news blog:
it seems unlikely they will listen or take note of their users’ opinions or wishes.
JUST WANT TO MENTION THAT IT SEEMS FUNNY THAT WORDPRESS HAVE PUT A STOP TO COMMENTS ON THE POST (Your Stats have a new home) – HARDLY LIKELY TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THE MAJORITY WERE NEGATIVE ABOUT THE CHANGES…OR ???
But if you are unhappy with the proposed changes – don’t just go along with it.
Register your thoughts and wishes !!!
Go to the forums !!!
Blog about it !!!
Link to bloggers and posts that do !!!
Tweet about it !!!
Here is an interesting article for you to read on WordPress (again introducing an unwanted feature without consultation of users) and how volunteers have left or been locked out of forums after commenting over this type of heavyhandedness: http://www.dailydot.com/news/wordpress-feature-angers-infinite-scrolling/
