Update and restart. Update and shut down? Noooooooooooooo. Go away ye bastion of recalcitrance! Every time I am met with this lack of choices, there is collateral damage, this time by way of the WP discretion gods.
I send a harmless comment to many regular patrons, and poof! Gonesville to cyber hell, where there is wailing and gnashing of words. Not even the decency of moderation, or a note: ‘your comment is sitting safe and pretty until it is rendered valid, or pointless.’
Don’t get me wrong, moderation by WP is a valuable tool, and is an asset when used with need, but sakes alive, WP is sending me to the island of misfits with everyone I hold near and dear.
So here’s a heads up to friends, countrymen, brethren, sistern (lol), acquaintances: being so dismissed? Well then, perhaps you too should get on board and raise a glass to vote for more rain in the rain forests!
Then there is always the possibility that nefariousness is playing a part, and the professional-atheist-programmer-botling-hacker-daylight-true God despising foe- has seen fit to infiltrate the den……..No, that’s not possible is it, since I am merely a voice of irrelevance…..
But seriously, this has never happened, to have every comment sent to the home of another only to be not even given the courtesy of ‘trashed.’ So impersonal, so unflattering, I’m suffering miserably. Ha!
And to they who cry: ‘see, karma will getcha for moderating MY comments!’ Uh, no, you have worked entirely too hard to deserve moderation. I have seen your two hundred plus comments on sites that are full of vulgarity, obscenity, perversion, and lack just plain decency, unfit to sit on the shelf of any home. There are plenty of sites that welcome such depraved words of men, and mine is not one of them, and I’ll be the judge of that thank you very much.
Then there is this. I have been recently ‘followed’ by some who by their very sites have innate hostility to the den. Perhaps the den has become a threat to world peace, and is a clear and present danger to the crowning of her queenship Ms. Clin-ton.
Perhaps the powers that be at WP have concluded that yes, the den is unsavoury and the likes of George Soros and his wealth are in jeopardy, as well as the gold medals of Katie Ledecky are also in threat of being usurped by these pages! Yes that’s it, the lion’s den is full of corruption and dead men’s bones, just waiting to thwart and upend all the elections of the world and to pillage the booty of all Olympians!
I have singularly parted the seas, and have taken full responsibility for dividing the islands, and yes, I admit, I did push Australia into the depths of solitary confinement! Ok I came clean, can I at least comment in the house of my friends? Or at least can I have a spam sandwich?
