I've given thought to staying in a previous release of minecraft in past updates. I've asked myself if there would ever come a situation where I can't stand some new feature. 1.8 is one of the biggest changes to date. Adding fundamentally game changing mechanics.. among other things. So I finally had to answer the question since there was potentially something I would not prefer over the last release.
And I immediately had the thought that I would never be satisfied just letting myself stay behind. For better or worse, I want to play the game as it stands at the time. If something bad happens, I guess I'll just have to adapt. If the game ever gets so bad that I cannot enjoy myself, I'll just quit.
So far I'm still here.
