the art of backtracking

Introduce something in March and it’s a great new feature, remove it in December and it’s another great new feature.

This has endless scope:

‘We got rid of the cluttered old front page with its random plugging of Matt and Friends and made it easier to read and faster to load!’

‘Remember the clunky rich text editor? Well, it’s been replaced by a much more intuitive editor featuring quicktags! Enjoy!’

‘We’ve replaced those silly widgets with a standard layout so that every blog you visit is guaranteed to have the same sidebar. No more confusion as you look in vain for the blogroll!’

‘We know that a lot of you have been requesting Google Adsense on your blogs, and we’ve been listening! From now on all wordpress.com blogs will feature a classy 468×60 ad banner directly below the header!’

Like I say. Endless scope.

    Now this is actually funny. Glad to have the old wank back. :)

    By which, I mean the blog is much funnier when it’s more Onion and less bad tabloid.

  3. “Bye bye blue! Beat it, blogs brightened by busy blue banners!”

    “Customization? We got your customization right here. Simply request the option that you’d like, and within 24 hours we’ll install if for all to use. Everyone gets their 15 pixels of fame!”
