*Knock knock knock* Anybody home?

NB: At codex wiki, my “”scratch list” of editor-related resources

*I think I’ve found a workaround: <blockquote>seems to force things to behave properly, even though the code doesn’t shot up. Let’s see. [Such a freaking waste of time!!!!!!!! Nope … no such luck. A totally pathetic sham excuse for an editor*

I just spent a while as wiki-gnome at Codex … just the right thing to do, you know?

Imagine how !pleased I was to find the following story/ies in my WP feed digest:

“to this day, I continue to see new incoming links from the older version, the buggy version, from RockinBizRed on the WordPress Theme Viewer, the official site for WordPress Themes, a site which continues to be closed to WordPress Theme authors and designers for updating their designs.
This really isn’t fair to the user of that theme. It’s not their fault the official WordPress Theme Viewer, a site they trust, delivered them an out of date, buggy theme.”

Guys? folk? ‘matticians? I have a question for you: “WTF?

Yesterday I got totally grossed out by the pathetic excuse for an editor I found in “Admin”. Now this. Holy crap …

– such a piece of crap. Ayup … NL lost on this period space. And on every spacer line below. Again.[I’m in CodeView … how come I can see the code? you know, the “source”? the HTML? Gaaaaaaaaawwwwwwl-dang! This is so incredibly lame … 2007 and I’m wrestling with white-space. Ok, fine, I’ll use & and <br />!!!]. There was a period all by itself on this line. Editing caused the NL to disappear, adding the period to the end of the previous line. [Sweet … switching from Visual to Code makes newlines disappear. And nobody noticed this before?! Incredible.]

. There were 3 spaces before this period. Editing caused the spaces to disappear. !Sweet.

[NB: 5th time I put a newline before this title!!][gets better … the freakin’ junk lost my “editor, theme viewer” tags. !Impressive.]
[lamer and lamer … even in “Visual” you cannot enter an ampersand … how totally lame. Users have been putting up with this heap of dung?! Dis-heartening, really.]

– such a piece of crap.[Know what? Netscape3.5’s “Composer is far far far far far far far better than this environment. (In “Visual” I see a nice HR, centered, 45% width. On my blog? No such luck.) Now, go ahead and tell me everybody’s so GD good at what they do. And I’ll shove1750 pages of MIL-SPEC manual I’ve written right up where the sun don’t shine.].

– such a piece of crap
