I have disappeared from the Reader. I just added myself again, but effectively, it looks like nothing I’ve posted for the past couple of weeks has been publicized. At all.
If anyone is interested, although we are out-of-town for a few days, we are still intermittently connected and alive and all of that. I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress. Half the people can’t complete a comment, another bunch can’t make their photographs appear. Connections are disappearing and then some then reappearing … but you just can’t stop those Happiness Engineers from screwing with your site.
I’m so disgusted with the way it is going, I’m just about ready to give up. NOT because I don’t want to write, but because I’m tired of having WordPress trash me every few months with some bizarre changes to the software that removes functions rather than improving ANYTHING.
For any of you who haven’t seen me around, I’m around. It’s them, not me, and I’m pretty much fed up. Not only that, but they’ve allowed several OTHER sites to use my title …. which isn’t legal and they are not supposed to do it.
This is not how you run an organization. WE ARE THE CUSTOMERS. They are not OUR customers. Someone should really remind them that without us generating material, no one would come to these sites at all.
I’ve been doing this here, on WordPress, for more than six years and this is the first time I’ve been just about ready to throw in the towel. I never thought I’d reach this point, but I’ve had enough. They can STOP fixing things that are not broken and try fixing the stuff that actually needs repair.
Maybe I should be looking for another platform.
