I spent some time playing with this box and I was left wondering why
people still keep repeating the sins of our fathers. The UI is lacking
and broken in many aspects and for me the box is unusable because of
this. The screen layout and design is also not consistent.

The main UI alone tells me that the box is designed to only hold a few
pieces of content (or translation: we designed it this way because we
don't have any content yet).

- Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at

unsubscribe in the subject line.
