For long-time WP’ers: Round II
After “improved” Dashboard went up, adjusting what I could, I published in December, until I got fed up with the bugs and seriously ill. I figured one post would attract specific event readers and First day of new year: I noticed spiking with a lot of readers and some things missing. I shut off cookies to look via Google.
I saw: an ad —shoved under the headline. Without Announcement —ASKING—NOTIFYING –or even INFORMING me first: WP used my writing —my creativity, to make money, for themselves —after long ago coyly ‘implying’ that “might” happen.
Since the blog is on dot com: on a system known all over the web for not permitting advertising, only WP could have done that.
Do I oppose advertising? Of course not, hell, whole world runs on it. –Even control freak-Republican Mayor Mike sold advertising on the New York crystal ball “lit” on New Year’s to a corporation that slapped their name in front of it. I do Object to: getting used –someone using my work –without asking or even telling me first –NOT knowing that readers of my writing are subject to advertising. Tell them? I Object to: comment censorship on ‘announcement’ blogs, no negs allowed –but No Prob, they do publish flattery, praise, adoration.
I OBJECT to: WP taking time to hype, “poll”-post non-stop on impending “improved” Dashboard, but not to fixing vertical scroll bar, lousy headline breaks now, not correctable, stupid SpellCheck that STILL doesn’t recognize b-l-o-g -splits words into two -my city’s name “misspelled” plus the missing stats, etc, etc, etc., bugs FIRST.
What did I go look at? Among others, my wedge of WP, within first few weeks, Began over three years ago with: PageRank 5.
Now? PageRank: 2 –My most-clicked page: over 10,500 readers, but my PageRank dropped –people aren’t coming back – volume dropped —because my wedge of WP has advertising? I don’t KNOW why.
So last day of new month, still ill, still wondering: I get that censorship and bugs would already be gone, if those mattered, but want to know
• How Much money WP has made on advertising put on dot com blogs?
• How Much WP has made off my blog –all the way back to when I discovered stupid ads stupidly shoved into the post on Catholic “priest” pedophiles?
It’s been over two and half YEARS, I’m sure at least some want to know: WHEN
• WP people will recognize Intellectual Property rights of writers and the Ethical –Legal –Moral OBLIGATION to CLEARLY state policy on ADVERTISMENTS now put, silently, on WP blogs, so bloggers CAN decide to accept or reject such?
• WP people will grow up?
• WP people will get some class?
daVine Remedy –for bugs –for abuse –deceit –sly policy? If you have any: please reply. IF WP people think the slippery advertising “Policy” is Okay –I’m wrong: email me your home address –maybe I will slap up a billboard on a side of your home, someday, so you can see How Much You like advertising –sneak attack –getting shunned –loosing credibility. Gee, I think you just got “notice” of ‘intent.’ Or not....
