Very Tired And Knickers In A Knot About WP

As some of you other WP bloggers might know already, do not know, might be interested in or not… After they did their sort of “overhaul” of our templates etc… they also did something else. For some reason, it didn’t affect me right away. Maybe the rollout took some time to get everyone on board.

I made a post and then I went in to respond to my comments. Right above them all was a list of “Possibly Related Links.” Huh? I clicked on the links and Oh.Holy.Hell. “Related” my Patient Anonymous: Just Another Head Case Ass!!! I fucking flipped! Just how on earth did this shit get on my blog???

I contacted my “WordPress Go-To-Guy” Gabriel… who has written a post about it here. You might want to have a look? In my typical fashion on his posts I have commented several times in a row. That is because his posts (and other commenter’s thoughts) can get me thinking and then I think some more. And then think some more. It’s kind of: “And another thing!” “Wait, and another thing!” He doesn’t mind, though. Because I’m nuts.

I really don’t understand this “thing” that they’ve implemented. If you don’t read the link above, from what I can gather (after reading some discussion on WP until my head was going to explode) it’s something they are doing in connection with Sphere. I can’t stand it. I’m tempted to re-enable it right now for this post just to show you what it might bring back. However, since I have linked to the discussion above, well, that might bring a huge downpour of utter vomit. Linking to Sphere? Well, that might just bring me in boatloads of advertising?

I could write some absolutely ridiculous post all about being completely mental, how horny as all hell I am right now, the fucking colour of paint on my walls, my random obsession of the moment, how handy I am at replacing doorknobs and installing locks–I can actually do this quite well–it’s very simple, my love of anime, some information about meds, how I still have my first teddy bear and baby blanket, how my bed is again (still?) in total disrepair and continue to direct everyone to the “Nutcase Bed Poll” on my sidebar, that my favourite colour is purple, I am in desperate need of a haircut, if I can’t get a job in a suitable time frame, I am thinking of becoming an escort (high class, of course–I want to make the big bucks.)

Do you think that would be good enough content to garner some nice “Possibly Related Links?” Bloody hell I know all the ones about sex would. And my bed. And maybe even my teddy bear too would get tied in! I’d get some nice links to stuff about the “Plushie” or “Plushophile” gang!

  1. haha i was wondering what the hell that thing was! i saw it on one of my posts and i thought to myself… “gee, i don’t remember putting that up there.” then i thought people were just editing my posts and somehow adding them to it.. haha crazy. mines read:

    Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)

    BPD…An Ugly disorder
    I used to be Schizophrenic. The Doc said its allright now… but we didn’…
    “I See” Said the Blind Man.

    i wasn’t surprised to see that on the blog “Possibly related posts” or whatever it was that they were getting good feedback on the idea and then gradually, more and more bloggers complained about it haha. i only had it on one of my posts, as far as i know and i didn’t click through all of them to check (just the first couple), so maybe i just have a bunch of tags that have nothing to do with other people’s. this i highly doubt.

    anyway, thanks for bringing this to my attention.


  2. Hi unfitting, that’s funny that you thought that you might have put the links there. I wonder how many other people were caught off guard? Probably all of us crazies going…huh? Am I going out of my mind…like…well…in whatever flavour that we may do? And that’s also a good (but scary!) thought that people were actually editing your posts. Could you imagine! Oh, great…someone is hacking my blog!

    In a way though, it almost feels like WP was doing that.

    Nice ones that you got. I wish I could remember mine but…oh, whatever. Again, I could just set it back up and see.

    No problem about letting you know. I’m still thinking it’s all weird and there was another thing about if you disable it you won’t get traffic counts or something from “other” blogs? I’ve left a comment on Gabriel…‘s post about that so maybe he can explain that to me too. Like, from other WP blogs? That doesn’t make sense to me either.


  3. I just turned it off. I’m not doing this for stats. If I was, I’d be writing p0rn, or HOWTO make money, or sports, or Britney Spears.


  4. Hi Greybeard, I know…it’s truly ridiculous, isn’t it?
