Can I vent a little bit about CreateSpace?

Backstory: I moved my paperbacks to KDP a few weeks ago, after tossing the idea back and forth for a while to begin with. A little over a week ago, I tried to lower the price of one of my paperbacks to coincide with a Kindle Countdown Deal, only the price on the Amazon page never changed, even though the lower price was showing live on my KDP dashboard. I submitted the price change about 3 times within a week, and nothing, including again today.

So now, that and the fact that KDP still has no projected date (that I can tell) for expanded distribution, led me to decide to move my paperbacks, or at least a couple of them, back to CreateSpace until KDP works out its kinks and/or forces us to move all books. Then I ran into an error, stating that the ISBN was already in use, and therefore would not let me save it back onto CS.

Granted, after some thought, I'm not sure if this is because I'm still waiting for the option for the paperback "edit details/content/pricing" to become available again so that I can Unpublish the paperback from KDP, at which time perhaps the ISBN would no longer be "in use"?? Meanwhile, my countdown deal is now, of course, ended, so the price change is pointless now anyway.

It's been frustrating, to say the least, but to make matters even worse, I made the mistake of posting a question in the CS "Community" asking how to move paperbacks back to CS without having to generate a new ISBN, and nearly every response I've gotten there has been exceptionally rude. Comments like "Hey, Michelle (lipmag) -- in another thread you stated what you were tired of. Know what I'm tired of? Newbies with an attitude, such as Nicolette here."
This coming from Lorem_Ipsum, member since Feb 2015, while I've been a member since Apr 2013??

Ok, I'm done ranting now. But if any of you know if this is actually a thing, where you can't use CreateSpace generated ISBN's on CreateSpace itself... Or that CS will be shutting down completely so that all paperbacks will have to go through KDP... Or even when KDP will open up expanded distribution on paperbacks, please feel free to share that info. (Preferably in a way that doesn't make a person with a Masters degree feel like an idiot.)

I should just go with Ingram Spark for paperback and avoid the whole trouble.
