Oh Sweet Jeebus There’s Another



  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.


    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.


    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.

    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.

    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.


    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.

  1. How rude. Considering the amount of time and effort both you and TT put in, plus your patience and expertise, I am quite horrified.

    Oddly I did have a problem with one of my alter egos and the password which WP wouldn’t accept. I suspect I was typing too quickly and expecting it to register 5 minutes ago. All sorted without resorting to abuse on forums.

    Some of us do appreciate the work you do. Sorry for sounding sucky. I don’t normally.

  2. Imma have to come in here and be an IDIOT and open myself up for abuse by defending Mayberry.

    You young’uns (I KNOW you’re all younger than me) are just not going to believe all the things that become damn near impossible when you start to lose everything in life, like your eyesight, ability to walk, wipe your butt, etc. It’s hell getting old.

    Perhaps something as simple as password storage is not a problem for young whippersnappers such as yourselves.

    But for those of us who did not grow up with computers, or in the Internet age, and can remember a time when we had ONE PASSWORD to remember and the hardest part of getting online was waiting for that AOL connection (wish I could do justice to it, onomatopoeiacally, like bzzzt brrrr eeeeeeeeeeek, but it was worse than that) life with passwords has become a living nightmare. I can’t remember why I walked into this room. You expect me to remember 5 gajillion passwords, and let us not forget, you recommend I have a fooking different password for each of the 5 gajillion password-protected places or operations I use. It’s too much. I can’t even keep straight all the pills I have to take every day.

    So I feel your pain, mayberry. Frankly, at this moment, I could not tell you what my current wordpress password is, either. Luckily, I logged on automatically from the link Raincoaster sends me. I enjoy Raincoaster immensely even though RAINCOASTER BULLIES OLDSTERS!!!! You beast. At least your Chupucabramonster thing there looks like you. :P Be strong, mayberry, if you have your readers on and can see this….

  3. @roughseasinthemed
    Without doubt forum f***wits fail to read the brain owner’s manual and comprehend the contents before they began allowing theirs operate without competent attendant at the helm. And, raincoaster and I have put up with 8 years of abuse from such out of control fools. Granted it’s hard to, but we do manage to rise above the urge to pick on those who were shortchanged when brains were handed out.

    As for me, I have never suffered fools gladly. As a younger person I was intolerant and many heard my metaphorical shillelagh whack them in an attempt to realign their synaptic interfaces. In middle age I allowed my inner witch to mount her broom, fly into through ear canals,and onward into empty heads to buzz around a bit. After that I sent her away on vacation but she’s coming back.

    “Stay tuned because you ain’t seen nothing yet”. Yes, there’s a big breakout party upcoming. Yes, I’m planning a take the velvet gloves off day to celebrate my official coming of age day as a senior> You’ll get an invitation to sip wine and munch popcorn in the grandstands, while I stomp on some grapes and maybe some mayberries too. Hell, if it’s your fancy you can even join me because your fractured ankle will be healed by then. ;)

  4. Uhhh… I guess I am officially old now since I am over 60. I have an iffy relationship with all things electronic but I can’t imagine how I lived without an iPad or a computer. As far as remembering passwords goes, I don’t even try to remember them. I write them down. And if by some mischance the cyberworld doesn’t recognize the one I am inputting, I simply click “forgot my password” and follow the instructions. Geez.

    Maybe you bully everyone, RC, but you do it with intelligence and wit.
