Ancestry changing way of doing things

I have been an ancestry subscriber for approaching 10 years and recently they have changed the way that HINTS work
In the past, any major changes have been "optional" ie) Your choice, but not with HINTS, they don't allow the user to use HINTS on other people in the tree, other than the person who the hints pops up on
I emailed Ancestry a few weeks ago and was told that "public outcry" meant that the changes were to be reversed, but they are still in existence
Any other Family Tree fans out there, feel the same as myself ?

    Nope, never used Ancestry as there are much more cost effective ways of doing your family tree.
    Retired at age 56 after having "light bulb moment" due to reading MSE and its forums. Have been converted to the "budget to zero" concept and use YNAB for all monthly budgeting and long term goals.
