WP Editor creates pan duh moan yum




“It’s funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they’ll do practically anything you want them to.”― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“W H A T ‘ S  D A  M A T T A  W I D  Y O U ?”

This week’s challenge on partner Susan and my alternate site, WEEKLY PROMPTS, is the word PATIENCE.

It is most applicable this week since the gurus at Word Press are really begin to test user’s patience to the nth degree.

Ever notice how Word Press developers are always doing things back ass wards and that they do something and then ( sometimes 10 hours later) inform their users of the new way of doing business?

Such is the case with the “new ” block editor of obfuscation that has by now intimidated and buffaloed many faithful, longtime users into tugging at their hair and say what the heck is going on?

The video demonstrates how two levels of understanding and meaning can turn simple questions into complex and involved definitions. The audience can figure out what is going on but the man asking the question is totally out of touch with the reality of it all.

I think I am using the “old classic editor” but when I add copy to my article the letters get badly jumbled and I am tempted to reach for another glass of scotch and soda water. 

If a monkey can eventually type out a play worth of W. Shakespeare then let the new editor be sent to the Bronx zoo where the inhabitants there can playfully adjust their sentence structure and innate syntax to meet the new criteria.

As for the rest of all all we can do is yell out loud “Hey Abbott” as we muddle our way of of this syncopated catastrophe.

As the captain of the Titanic reportedly said to the cabin boy “bring me another scotch and hold the ice”.

We are all in this mess together and it seems like sinking or swimming is our only viable option. We can awlays abandon ship but what would that prove really?

How far can you tread water?
