Possible attack on WordPress Via Doss Attack..and other sites..(Maybe)

    @shan – write what you like – your blog – your time – your audience – pay no attention to the peanut gallery on what to write – I used to do news clippings and email them to friends – had I know what a “blog” was back then I would have maybe put them on a blog – then people would have whined that all the content was just clippings and links to news stories – what we now call ReBlog – but the people that got the emails were happy for me to search out the stories for them –

    so do what you want – if you are not having fun you are doing it wrong

    good luck


    Also TimeThief
    Check: http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/?s=Disabled&submit=Search

    I have done around 170 blogs of my own.
    I did over 1,000 as a Sports Reporter using Pro WordPress.
    Next time you decide to give me moral advice on my SHIT blog.
    Please at least read my blog. And have a look why I get award.
    Because I give a dawn about other people who are disabled and in pain.

    I am very angry at your reply to me. Truly.
    I am Insulted.

    @macmanx lol :D
    Was you mocking me, through another member,
    I may be Scottish and Disabled but I am not stupid.
    As suggested here in a blog I did today, Scottish people are not so stupid.
    Please read and judge if you choose.

    Unreal, honest. 10 posts in here as I was unsure of the free version. And you attack me on my blog. Are you a writer? Do you get paid here? Should I mock Miss Perfect here?

    To the owners, Admins I am Truly sorry for this reply.
    But as someone who was a PAID Sports reporter and used WordPress I find it astonishing this type of action and blatant being nasty is “OK”…
    For me it is not..
    I lose a lot of respect for you Mrs Time, You helped me many times.
    Your first answer saying I wasn’t helping was MORE than enough to tell me I was wrong. I deleted the blog there and then.

    So please, take a second to read a few of my blogs or poems and come back and tell me I need to focus on my Original Content.



    Thank you.
    As I said, WordPress I love.
    It saves my life.

    The reason it saved my life is in one of my blogs.
    To be told my blogs are rubbish and have her “Wink, Nudge, Smile” to mock me was, well, VERY sad.

    I love this place.
    Without it, my disability would be worse.
    This gives me an outlet to care and share and I do help many.
    I do not understand nasty. Or being nasty.

    So to answer, I am very happy here.
    I just don’t get the reason for the attack on me after stating I should not have posted the blog (I deleted right away) Then she came back again at me.

    I am a paid writer for a few online sports sites.
    I love to write. To be told I am rubbish is insulting, rude, hits my pride as a disabled person. But discrimination I live with, If SHE TRULY has read 170 blogs to know my writing she would know I am disabled.




    To be fair, timethief and everyone here without a grey background behind their name to the left (like mine) is an unpaid volunteer giving up their free time to help wherever they can, but I do understand if you took offense, however I think her “lol :D” to me was just for promoting our recently launched two site authentication.

    You can always reach out to us directly via http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/


    I am thankful for your reply macmanx, and it is great Miss Time would take FREE time to insult people the way she did here.
    She is perhaps your friend? So you are right to stick up for her.

    For me the matter is over, I have been honest, like TimeThief who is obviously the best blogger here. I am insulted heavily. And I am glad you can see why.

    Sadly this will sour my Time here from now on….
    As I have been an Admin, A mod and a helper.
    In-fact I volunteer here myself : http://wordpresschat.wordpress.com/ I am trying to learn the free version almost backwards here, so I don’t have to come to the (Crazy as it sounds) Support area.

    So I give my free time also to many to help here. I just spent two hours helping a member embed a video here: http://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/awards-and-thank-yous/
    And I got thanked for it..
    There is an issue with Youtube links with many users just now. If you read my replies you will see what the issue is, this was one I did come here to ask for help on, but figured it out myself. As a PC Tech, you do tend to be able to find a workaround to issues.
    If not, I come here. And timethief has helped me many times.
    I obviously annoy her, but the issue is not with me.
    I don’t understand nasty…

    I am sorry again for being angered. But I just showed this to several friends on here, I never said a word, and all said “Why was TimeThief so nasty”

    Ach..As they say in Scotland “It will pass with the Rain” :-)
    Really, no worries. I am angry, but won’t allow to make me cry.

    I think a sorry would be nice.

    Thank you.


    On reflection with time to put things into context. That being “This is not real life”

    I would like to celebrate with you all something I did 1 week ago today. It was suggested I was unhappy here. MY GOD!! Nobody could be further from the truth. I realise you deal with questions so ridiculous and easy to answer for you, it must drive you crazy. and not to others who like me are almost new to this version of Word Press. It can be annoying sitting day after day answering the same questions when people could search for the answer and not bother people. I have been there, I almost had a stroke. Truly, the admin all laughed and joked because the simpletons could not grasp something they themselves could answer before you could utter the phrase “I pity the fool” So I get frustration.

    So, anyway, its been said, I maybe over reacted, but the statement made was in VERY bad taste and really poor. I stand by that.

    So I would *From the bottom of my heart* truly, be HONOURED if everyone in this debate could PLEASE accept this award
    I created it one week today (Ish)
    It states:

    “This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”

    This is how much I love this place, I even created an award that is now flying about like Drones in the USA.
    I would also, if I can, like to share this with you.
    As we are all part of an extended family of help, caring and sharing.
    Blog: A blog I would like to share

    Any feedback would be AMAZING.

    Also as well as the award, I thanked YOU!
    Something I wrote with TimeThief in mind :-)

    So, I was perhaps a bit “Scottish” there for a bit.
    So I apologize unreservedly. But the comment was poor. But I forgive, there is no need for a sorry. Really it is cool. As said, some here are volunteers for Word Press, same as me, I work free here also.

    So lets all be best friends, and please accept my award.
    Truly I do love this place. I will end up paying to go Pro, not that my payment alone will throw Word Press into the status of Global Leaders in the financial markets :-) (That was a joke)

    Joking aside, it was a disgusting thing to say and horrible to read, knowing none of my blogs, the way I think, how much I help etc had never once been looked into by the person saying the rude comment.

    But..I am Scottish.
    lets get drunk eh..
    As I am a moderator here, for the site: Me working the ongoingy Youtube issue many are having

    Kindest Regards to all
    Shaun :-)
    I wish you all well. Really.
    I am on medication, sometimes I take things differently.
    I am sorry for this. I am now off the feeling of the medication “Although it is 03:30 and I can’t sleep due to pain :-) “

    The Word Press Familuy



    Are you going to keep posting until you get an apology? Because that’s not really going to work.


    No mate. I am not going to keep posting till I get a “Sorry” as I said above I don’t want one.
    Here: http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/chronic-pain-syndrome-sleeping-patternspain-god-and-much-more/

    As a Word Press user this is how I feel this second. This is not your fault, it is just the nature the beast, what I have. It is not cool. Had you read my post you would have not had to write this one. As I did say.
    I still think the remark was wrong.
    But I am in a worse place right this second. It happened, it is gone, I have moved on. Can we all do that please?

    I don’t care to become the bad man for trying to help then getting abused for it in-front of god knows how many people. I want to leave it here. Your the boss, boss..
    I just can’t believe the comment was made. It was so ignorant.
    But please, read the blog above, I mean it with all my heart. If you don’t believe me read some of my blogs. You are guessing on me here, presuming even. I am not a bad person. This thread I started and then got abused for trying to help isn’t helping my cause here, not your customer service.

    As I say, your the boss.
    Again I am sorry, and please read the blog I sent.
    I am just stunned.. I am the bad guy?

    Kindest Regards


    ps , my teo posts…
    I replied to macmanx
    Then I said “On reflection”

    Then you posted.
    Then I posted twice more.
    Can we leave it here? Please Sir/Madam


    I would be happy if you could just delete this entire post/thread
    Could you do that? And we can pretend it never happened, then all get with life?



    Make up your mind: either you are going to continue to post till you get an apology (which you are never going to get) or you can stop posting to the thread. You can’t do BOTH.



    I regret there are those who have chosen to pick on you, because they can.

    When you blog, you slowly learn to ignore those who find their strength in belittling others.



    I am sorry for saying nasty things about A woman who helps a lot on here. I am 100% in the wrong, so please accept my sorry please.
    She was right, I was wrong.

    I kindly ask you delete the thread, or please accept my apology and we can leave it here. I do not want an apology. I was on HEAVY medication, I was wrong. So please TimeThief please accept my apology for saying rude things about you. I would be happy if my apology could be accepted and I will say sorry once more and hope this can be the end of the matter.

    Kindest Regards.
    Again. I am sorry.
