“The New WordPress Editor is coming!”

I do not want a “new” editor. “New” means “different,” and that means not being able to do my work until I learn a whole lot of new improved booshwa. I never asked for a new editor. I don’t know why WordPress would impose these changes on me. I’ve never done them any wrong that I know of.

So toss away another chunk of time, pleading with the Happiness Engineer to leave me in peace with my old editing format which I can actually use. This is among the least profitable activities I know of. The Happiness Engineer’s solution is always to hit you with a lot of computer-nerd lingo, which to me is just pure gibberish. “Here, stupid! Here’s a passel of extra steps for you to take before you can get any work done!”

Do they hate their customers, or do they just hate me?

I am told that I’ll be getting the New Editor whether I like it or not ’cause that’s what we’re gonna do and we don’t care what you think, so go jump in a lake.

All I asked was to be left alone.

  1. I keep dealing with “stuff” like this all the time. All these new, innovative electronic “helps” are so annoying. Who do they “help”? Certainly not I.

  2. Reminds me of Microsoft Windows. You buy their program, then it goes from 7.0 to 8.0 and it’s okay, But then they go to 8.1 and your 7.0 doesn’t work so well. Then it’s 10,0 and all those with 7.0 are out of luck and it’s time to pony up to pay for the upgrade. No wonder Bill Gates is so rich.

    1. I got Windows 10 “accidentally”, but for free. However, it actually turned out to be so much better! No kidding. I too went kicking and screaming when Gates took away my 7.0.

    2. Well, a lot of the problem is me. I’m so bad with computers, it takes me forever to learn techniques–***and I really, really hate having to absorb all sorts of changes that somebody has thrown at me! But maybe it won’t be so bad. Maybe.

  3. I know what you mean. When things work, don’t fix them, is my motto.
    The former programs worked fine- now this mess.

  4. Some companies are obsessed with updating their software so often that it just becomes excessive and annoying.
