The Naked Listener’s Weblog believes in and evinces a moral professionalism, and
apologises for the inconvenience and temporary lack of lulz.
Normally, by both temperament and technical background, I don’t protest. I sue instead because litigation often provides the requisite results that I so desire. My first lawsuit as plaintiff was when I was 12 years old.
Why this now? No special reason. WordPress is asking.
I would’ve ignored it, but since the nice folks at WordPress had (a) asked nicely and (b) offered a protest option via the dashboard, I figured why the heck not?
WordPress had already sent out a post about it. Get the memo!
