We are not amused…

Published June 5, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Since I seem to recall swearing off snarking some time ago, I’m reduced to snarking via reblogging or partially snitching. Since jill dennison (Filosofa’s world) is fairly reliable for snark, I thought I’d share a bite of hers’:

She describes several irritants, closing with a favorite of mine:

“Software, websites and browsers that make sudden unwanted changes. Most of you here on WordPress can relate, for WordPress has made numerous changes over the past six months that most of us hate, but they seem not to care about the opinions of their customers. Microsoft Office continually makes small changes, or what they call ‘improvements’ that require us to do something differently, generally requiring extra time. And the two browsers I use, FireFox and Opera, have recently made changes that, at least in my view, are not welcome! It seems we just get used to something, figure out how to work with it, and then it’s changed for no apparent reason. (Italics are Nan’s)

I have more pet peeves, but these are the ones that are bugging me most at the moment. What are some of yours?”

Nan responds, “In my senior moments I suspect it’s a ploy to steer bloggers on to the more expensive .org than our .com” P.S. I love our wp.com, fellas!
