Notice anything different? Well with wordpress, users are stuck with the templates “as is” unless you fork over some $$$, at which they open up the CSS sheet (sorry, that’s redundant – Cascading Style Sheet sheet….sheet) and allow users to make customizations. I suspect that if you are a regular peruser of this ludicrous blog you’ve ascertained that I enjoy fiddling with colors, fonts, shapes, sizes. Well, for two or three weeks now I’ve been getting messages saying my ability to customize my CSS is about to expire. That’s ok, I thought. I was pretty happy with the way it looked and could live with it for awhile. At NO time was I told that all my changes would be wiped out upon said expiration and my page would be taken back to square one. Bad enough I have to pay to customize but now I have to keep paying to keep my customizations. I left Blogger because 1) it was buggy as hell and I was tired of never being able to leave comments and 2) it is connected to Google which keeps a copy of everything that touches it’s servers. I suspect others do to but that just sort or un-nerved me.
Now this. In the words of the great spiritual healer Mother Theresa, “What a bunch of shit.”
