I found it, but tried to reply to quickly here and wordpress blocked me out for a little bit or something.
it does look like either we promote trash like links to Michelle Malkin, or we lose out on the thing that made wordpress a leading blog platform.
and it really was cute to deal with the launch of this new "feature" on a weekend when the wordpress support is closed.
we already host so much advertising with the Snap Preview feature, it really is too bad that we now need to either give up autonomy over our writing and host racist and offensive content or become relatively invisible to the internet.
I suppose if WordPress had figured out a way to make it a choice that didn't involve radical right wing propaganda, it would have been easier to agree to use and test this new feature.
but linking to Malkin, that just makes it impossible. Ultimately, we write to be read, and if WordPress wants to block that feature from its blogs, it does seem that if anyone actually wants to write, we'll have to find a platform that doesn't make us agree to support ugly and hateful propaganda in exchange for the privilege.
there's money, and then there is what is ultimately more valuable than money, I suppose.
