I have officially given up on WordPress. It is FUCKED.
Despite much criticism by objectors, I discovered this morning that WordPress has forced me to its “Block Editor.” This editor is designed for clickbaiters who simply lift content from other sites. To get anything that vaguely resembles the text-style editing that I have been using on assorted platforms for twenty-five fucking years, I have to dig through the menus, and that only gets me a crippled version.
As best I can tell, the only way to post my OWN images (as opposed to stealing them from somewhere else and pasting them into a “block,” I have to use the block editor Nope; even with the block editor I don’t see how to upload my own images. Ah, there it is; I think.
Fuck this shit. I blogged for fun and personal rants. This isn’t worth it.
Someday, if I can ever afford it again, I’ll get my own host and blog as *I* want. I’ll keep a backup of this blogged in hopes of using the material again.
I’ll leave this blog up for a while. If you think you might want a copy of any of my books, or the Practical Remedial Civics series, grab them now. Because unless WordPress apologizes for this utter goddamned crap, and restores the old usable-by-someone-not-a-claickbaiting-content-thief, I’m going to delete the blog completely.
Have a nice day.
