There must be someone out there in computerland who can explain this to me.
Last night I checked my viewing stats: 261 views. We then watched a long movie. Two hours later, I checked the stats again: still 261 views. Not a single view added. But–!
Somehow a bunch of Likes and comments got added, without any more views. How could that happen? But it gets weirder than than. A lot of those comments were made by Tammy on a post that went up back on Oct. 1. Why were they re-running these?
I’m still losing 1,000 views a month, compared to last year and the first half of this year, and I still don’t know what’s going on. When I ask WordPress I just get a lot of techie lingo that might as well be Rongo-Rongo boards to me. I have asked for explanations in plain English, but haven’t gotten any.
(In case you never heard of Rongo-Rongo: It comes from Easter Island, and no one knows how to read it.)
Anyway, I’m wondering if WordPress actually counts the views as they come in, or if there’s some kind of glitch they’re not telling us about–and it gives me a highly uneasy feeling about the elections coming up, in which “Vote by Mail!” is to play a major role. And probably a corrupt role, at that.
Which all leads to a bigger question: Does our hi-tech stuff still work? Really? Or are they only pretending it does?
