An Open Letter To WordPress

Goldfish has invaded my brain. There’s not one word I disagree with. WordPress, for the love of all that is holy, get with the program and stop dumbing down the blogging experience. Mmmkay?

Fish Of Gold


I am loath to write yet another letter to you, since I typically prefer to spend my time writing actual blog posts, but I’ve been bitching on Twitter and in your forums to no avail, so maybe you’ll pay attention to a blog post. It’s not likely, but hey, you never know.

Please, stop. Just put down whatever you’re working on and stop with the futzing. You have been tinkering under my hood long enough and you know what? None of the “improvements” you’ve made are actually improvements.

Below, you will find explanations as to why your improvements aren’t improvements sorted conveniently by feature.

About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

  1. I pray to God they leave BlogSpot alone. All the improvements on emails and the rest make things WORSE. I have noticed that, they make all commands more complicated. My yahoo emails barely work, and slog along when years ago even on dial-up they whizzed along. I don’t get computer people they seem busy just making everything more complicated and it pisses me off too.

      I think the computer geeks just like tinkering around with the programs because they’re bored or something. Instead, they should spend their time getting me on Freshly Pressed! lol–j/k!
