Oh Sweet Jeebus There’s Another

Ugh.

STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY, WORDpress

  1. Please stop rejecting my passwords. I don’t care if you don’t think my password is not secure. I am OLD, & it is more important that I can remember it. Trust me, it’s fine. STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY!

    The blog I need help with is notmayberry.wordpress.com.

  2. STOP BULLYING THE ELDERLY!

    Are you kidding me? What’s with this ageism nonsense? We can learn new things right up until the day we passover. I’m not buying into that because there is no evidence that the vast and overwhelming number of seniors are not mentally competent and have memory issues. In fact the numbers of seniors who have memory issues are low.

    STOP POSING AS A VICTIM!

    Only passive aggressive manipulators pose as victims under the guise of being bullied and make demands for special treatment based on ageism.

    In fact the password setting requirements are the same for all of us bloggers regardless of age and infirmity. Note my gray hair and know I’m also a senior. My advice is either get with the program as I have done or find anther hobby.

  3. If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    The weakest point in any security for your online accounts is usually your password. Traditional Passwords Are No Longer Safe. For Selecting a Strong Password see herehttp://en.support.wordpress.com/selecting-a-strong-password/

  4. What a jerk you are timethief! Go get some meds for your personality disorder. Shut up; your replies are mean & useless.

    I have been using the same password on WordPress for 3 years. I want to keep using it. Suddenly WordPress rejects it because , ” I have used it before”. WordPress is constantly telling me I am not signed into my account when I am signed in.

    Apparently, there is no way to give feedback to WordPress, except via trolls like timethief in this forum? Bad idea.

  5. I have been using the same password on WordPress for 3 years. I want to keep using it. Suddenly WordPress rejects it because , ” I have used it before”. WordPress is constantly telling me I am not signed into my account when I am signed in.

    Oh so now that your posing as a victim routine replete with using ageism as a manipulative tool to get special treatment got you nowhere, you prove you can communicate like everyone else. You could try emailing support@wordpress.com

  6. Nobody is bullying you because you are elderly. If you are being bullied, it’s probably because you are an unintelligent drama queen.

  7. REDACTED

    See, when you whine and plead privilege, this is what you get. Spam. Great work there.

  8. Hi there,

    Sorry to hear that you think WordPress.com was bullying you. The only reason why we ask for a secure password is to prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access to your account. When such happens, there’s a chance that your personal data and blogs may be stolen, and even bigger problems may occur as a result. I think that this little sacrifice on your part would prove beneficial in the long run. Thanks for your understanding.

  9. druesome, I know you’re a much, much nicer person than me. I’d just like to say that I hope WP is treating you right. To get me to respond politely to this rant…I don’t think the budget exists.

    Selah.

Still, you KNOW someone out there is bitching about tech support being slow. You just know it.

We’re BAAAAAAAAAAACK!

And we will be back to our irregular posting schedule just as soon as I rid us of this heinous white space and bring back our beloved tentacles.

My jimmies, they remain serene.

So, how’s YOUR week going

Head Crash

Head Crash

Let’s review: in the last week I’ve become officially homeless, had my hours at work cut in half, and now, in the crowning glory, an attempt to install a simple chat client on my computer wiped the entire contents including the system management software.

This is what you call a head crash: when the head goes CRASH on the desk.

What did I do? What would anyone do? well, anyone who was me? I screamed all over social media until someone stepped up to solve my problem, that’s what I did. What do I ever do, right? So the far-more-competent-than-me Tim Adkins from Free Geek met me on his day off and did a complete reinstall, with encryption and a partitioned hard drive so that even if half of it wipes the other half is still useable.

After we met up at Turk‘s for the reinstall, the sun was shining and the day was gorgeous for once in Vangroover, so I took the opportunity to stroll up the Drive for an hour or so, picking up the perfect party top for Gin & Sin on Wednesday at 20% off, then hopped a bus to the Forgotten Value Village up at 49th and Victoria. Lest you think the nature of the universe had somehow changed in my favour, my bank card was declined there, and the Starbucks told me that my Paypal top-up of $25 hasn’t shown up on my Starbucks card.

So it’s not entirely #FML but it’s not all sunshine and roses.

Oh. Wait. Thatcher is dead.
