It's not a question of being offended. Statements like "I'll just not
upgrade" are the least helpful thing you can do for yourself.

If you can give specific examples that can be improved, then devs can act
on those. If you just make vague complaints, or "the way it used to be"
then nothing much will come of it. I think you could apply this to how you
interact with any software project and probably other things as well.

Having a center option is already a reported bug and the author of the new
placement algorithm is already working on implementing it. (Thanks Ian.)
