If WordPress was truly a forum for writers and by writers, they would understand that writers become accustomed to things and don’t like to change.
We are like athletes who have a favorite baseball glove, a lucky jersey, a favorite curling broom, or a pair of cleats that they will not play a game without. Writers are very much the same (except without all the physical activity). We like things a certain way.
Want to freak out an athlete? Hide his or her favorite bowling ball. Replace their hockey stick with a curling broom. Over-inflate their footballs.
Well, it is the same for writers. Forcing us to use a new editor is no different from the examples I just gave.
So, here’s the bottom line. Here is my personal message to whomever is the Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, or Genghis Khan of WordPress.
I hate your &$#*@& new editor.
(P.S. Thank you for the blog post idea. I was kind of sucking wind up until I tried to use your execrable new editor.)
