When I read today’s WordPress daily one-word prompt, “willy-nilly,” it made me think about how WordPress has been behaving lately.

Willy-nilly means haphazardly or randomly. The Daily Post is supposed to appear in my reader every day. But for no apparent reason, it doesn’t show up in my reader about 20% of the time, forcing me to go search for it. I can’t find any pattern to its not showing up. It appears to be random.

And then there are days like today. The Daily Post did show up in my reader, but when I linked to it, it showed 87 Likes and 0 responses.


Come on, WordPress. 87 Likes and not even one response? Impossible. And this is the second time in about a month that this has happened.

I think that there’s some willy-nilly shit going on over at WordPress.

Update: It looks like they’ve fixed the issue with today’s one-word prompt, so let’s try again.

    “Hello, IT.”
    “Something is wrong with my computer.”
    “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”

    I lost (according them them) more than 1000 followers overnight and I stopped hearing from many close followers. They’ve got some serious server issues and we are not alone. There are people (especially those on WordPress.Org) who can’t hook up at ALL. No one can reach them — the server says “no such user.” It’s very messy. I wonder if THEY got hacked, too.

      Must be some guy on his bed in New Jersey who weighs 400 pounds doing the hacking.

        400 lbs? In New Jersey? You mean Trump?
