The only thing that surprises me is that you're surprised!
Highly disappointed. Waze is going to get crushed by the upcoming competition if they can't get their act together.
Waze will temporarily 'hide' their infrastructure issues from some Wazers and some new Wazers by trying to maintain the ability to navigate in the Application. That only buys them a couple of days until the questions start coming:
* Where are my points
* How come my points are not updating
* Why are the map fixes not updating in the application
* etc, etc, etc.
Then all of these new Wazers abandon Waze and all of the work everyone has been doing is for nothing.
