Yeah, right. WordPress doesn’t have it.

I had to cut and paste this one from the text in Wikipedia:

It’s my 8th anniversary on WordPress!

by allthoughtswork

8 Year Anniversary Achievement

I’d like to thank the hideous, head-up-ass Portland hiking club that wouldn’t let me speak my mind on their forum, forcing me to leave their administrative team and seek out more progressive artistic venues. If it weren’t for their impossibly puckered nether regions, you wouldn’t be basking in the rosy glow of my rum-soaked genius today.

Madhatters Goes Polyglot

polyglot-300x225madhatters has gone International

we’ve taken advantage of a new feature offered by WordPress

go on, try it – you know you want to !

Hard to believe it is 6 years since we started Madhatters

In that time we have put up 8,940 posts (an average of 4 posts per day) and received over 1 million (1,093,094) views – and all without once ever being ‘Freshly Pressed’ (stick that up your arse, WordPress!)

My thanks to my fellow authors on madhatters, both present (Nobbly, Ratty, Uniscikill) and past (Noseycow, and Julie) and all who have supported us by reading and commenting on our nonsense over the years !

Freshly F*****: A Rant About Bloggers

by UniSciKill

I don’t really care about the Freshly Pissed section of WordPress, except for the occasional wish not to see the damn page every time I log in. I know, I know – that’s the whole shitty point of the set-up.  Usually, I ignore the posts featured there and skip straight to my favorite blog, the madhatters, and comment or post based on my mood. Sometimes, out of curiosity I will make the gargantuan mistake of clicking on a Pucked Fress article because the title sounded vaguely interesting to me.  I should have known better.

F*ck Off, WordPress

by duncanr

Let me say at the start of this rant that I think WordPress is a damn good blogging platform. But . . . .

Like most folk, my inbox – despite junk filters – still receives a load of crap emails every day. It’s just something I’ve learnt to live with and they’re now a minor inconvenience

What really pisses me off though are those annoying pop up boxes etc that congratulate me because I am the 1 millionth visitor to a particular site and as such I am entitled to a prize – if I just click here. Do I look like I was born yesterday ???

So ‘piss off’ WordPress. If you want me to take part in a ‘5 second survey’, then just ask. It’s simple enough to do

But . . . .
