To be fair, a few things have changed...though not things that affect all
users.  For instance, moderation is down with a resulting measurable
increase in personal attacks and false (fraudulent, in many cases)
information posted, which has caused many advertisers to leave the site
(affecting the type of ads people now see), and the "verified" check mark
that some people used to rely on can now be simply purchased by just about
anyone and is thus no longer useful for its old role.

That said, you are mostly correct: not as much has changed as some people
are claiming.
