cumbersomness in the extreme. bye bye RSS

  1. if I ask a question, for instance, "What is RSS?" I can expect a complicated answer hedging around and about the specific topic I am troubled with, avoiding the 'meat' of what I said. so i'll repeat it. What is RSS? Personally, I don't care anymore. I just want it OFF my site. It looks bad for me to have things on my site that don't work, that I don't understand and probably wouldn't use anyway. SO, I just want to get rid of it. But your wordpress setup or site or page or whatever you call it, I don't care anymore, is SO difficult to use (I'm offended) that I don't want to use it anymore! Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it for a while longer. Therefore, I'll look for a better group. However, I can see that it is going to be SO difficult to even erase my information that I may not be able to shut down this operation called robbrichard's blogspot blog and you may be stuck with me forever! Now be nice to me and I'll stay. There are things about your site that I like and there is something good about blogspot: I sense there are some pretty good people behind this EXTREMEMLY user UNfriendly operation. Tell me: is the language I'm using okay for you? I use HUMAN language, this particular HUMAN language that I use is English. What is it YOU people use??? Now be nice! kiss. kiss. and tell me how to get rid of this RSS function that I've made the mistake of trying to use and failed and . . . off, I just want it off. thanks.

    The blog I need help with is robbrichards.wordpress.com.

  2. 1. When you ask a question here, we need a link to the blog so we can see if and what is wrong.

    2. Ranting like that hardly fits your supposed credentials.

    3. Ranting like that is unjustified, since you haven’t asked about this (or any other matter) before in this forum.

    4. The RSS in your sidebar isn’t for you to use: it’s for others interested in what you post. Here the relevant support info page:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/

    (Looks like English to me.)

    5. If you don’t want to have the RSS in your sidebar, you can go to Appearance>Widgets and activate only whatever you’d like to have.

    6. If you wish to “shut down this operation called robbrichard's blogspot blog”, we don’t care.

    (If you wish to shut down your wordpress blog, we don’t care either.)

  3. panaghiotisadam

    Seconded!

  4. If the blog in question is robbrichards.wordpress.com, the reason why the RSS widget is not going away is that you have not added any widgets to that sidebar, but are still using the default widgets, which appear automatically unless the user selects some of his/her own. Simply add the desired widgets to "Sidebar 2" and everything will be fine.

  5. Hi Ron! (Robb’s post gotta be the gem of the day…)

  6. What is RSS?

    This works for the BBC which has a global audience

    Video. It works.

    And I'll remind you that forums work just like real life - be polite or accept everything that comes your way.

  7. No, no, perish the thought! Us? Think you stupid?

  8. Another helpful link.

  9. @rain: By the way, check what his idea of using English is:

    You can delete your blog. It is permanent and neither you nor anyone else can use the url again.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/

    But it is not possible to delete your account:

  13. @robbirichards
    You have said: "I want to end my relationship with wordpress how do I delete my account ..."

    This is the link to Support documentation http://en.support.wordpress.com/
    This is the result of my search there for "delete account"
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

  16. He'll be better off at Blogger or LiveJournal.

  17. Or Tumblr. I believe it has "cumbersomeness" in the spellchecker there.

  18. Cumbersomeness in itself is quite cumbersome.

  19. It's certainly more word than he can handle unaided. Mind you, so is "Google".

  20. use dictionary.doc to look up the word rebuke.

    So... dictionary is a word document?

  21. Mine is "englishspeller.proofingtool."
