What is it with this stuff? I haven’t done anything, changed anything – I haven’t even had malign thoughts about Wordpress in general or any of its bloody widgets or plug-ins in particular – nothing! Suddenly, a couple of days ago replies I made to comments and any responses to that reply have disappeared – vanished into the ether – lost into bloody outer space!
Hours have been wasted, lost from what I have left from my (some would say ‘pre-ordained’) allotted quota! Plug-ins and widgets are the usual culprits to these things so there’s been much deactivating and reactivating, much fiddling with incomprehensible ‘settings’. Nothing resolved the problem – not even shutting everything off apart from security – Hiç, Zilch, even sacrificing even more hair on the altar to F$*&%”!, the god of utter friggin’ frustration, had no effect.
OK! A last, forlorn hope, I’ll change the theme. Hey Presto! everything works again! Or seems to, anyway – so, you tell me if you have any challenges commenting or getting a reply. Meanwhile I’m heading for a darkened room with a bottle of single malt and a straw! As for the ss in Wordpre**, you can read about it here. I’m convinced they’re out to get me!

ps for those with an interest in these things, ‘forlorn hope’ is derived from A forlorn hope is a band of soldiers or other combatants chosen to take the leading part in a military operation, such as an assault on a defended position, where the risk of casualties is high – from the Dutch ‘voorloren hoop‘ literally ‘lost troop’.
pps nothing has changed and I have to say I really can’t be bothered to give this any more time – I have had it with WordPress and everything to do with it!
