You certainly do need a good sense of humour in the WordPress.com support forums … hypocrisy, censorship, infighting … you can see it all there on any given day … more like a schoolyard than a forum for grown up people …
I just had my comment deleted in the forums – for simply factually stating my opinion about the new WordPress editor, and the conversation they’d had about it. Up until that point I didn’t have a particularly strong feeling about it either way, but delete my comment, censor me, and I sure do start having a strong opinion.
The “Beep Beep Boop” new quote ‘improved’ editor, simply isn’t improved. AND MANY PEOPLE HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT. It’s a big deal in the forums and people keep on opening threads. I don’t really understand why WordPress don’t listen, and continue to try to railroad people into using it. For instance :
https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-reinstate-the-option-of-choice-to-use-the-old-publishing-format (the post my comment was deleted from) … nearly 1000 comments !
It now seems they are CENSORING comments from people (like me) who don’t like the new editor, in order to presumably shut up people … and then CLOSING THREADS SO NO ONE ELSE CAN COMMENT … CENSORSHIP is NOT COOL, guys …
I’ve been bad-mouthed, defamed and slandered in the forums plenty of times and was told by staff – essentially “freedom of speech” when they refused to remove VALID code of conduct violations. So it seems they protect the freedom of speech of others but not mine … when did I lose my right to say what I want, whilst others gained the right to lie about me in public ? NOT COOL, either guys …
The new editor is like a cut down version of the previous editor, the “classic editor”, so I’m getting less instead of more. Plus they’ve starting changing buttons so I end up in the new editor when I don’t want to be … the only possible reason I could see for any benefit in the new editor is for mobile devices, like iPad/iPhone/etc but – don’t we have an app for that ?
And CENSORSHIP in the WordPress.com support forums … I can’t hardly believe it … or perhaps I can – I do have a sense of humour at the end of the day – I wouldn’t blog without it 😀
“You’ve gotta laugh or else you’d cry” a friend once said 🙂
I’m interested to hear your opinions actually on both the forums and the new quote ‘improved’ (crappy/awful/rubbish) editor.
PS If you want to FORCE the use of the old classic editor, instead of the new one – then instructions have been posted here, but be warned it is a bit ‘technical’
