Hello world!

Well, these were strange words to find put in my mouth upon my arrival:

“Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!”

While a helpful tutorial, its cheeriness is nauseating.  Being welcoming and using exclamation points should not be an offensive thing to do, but inexplicably it is, at least here in this case.

There, that would be a group worth joining on Facebook (or here, if they have groups): “Petition One Million Strong to Get the “Hello World!” Post Off WordPress.”

Like all the others– fighting Facebook changes, or my personal favorite, offering to legally change their name to Voldemort– somewhere in their minds they realize  that they were never serious.

  1. Glimpsing infinity has the usual reaction of stunned silence. Or so the mystics say, if I may paraphrase them.
    The internet is relatively close to infinite, for being in such a confined and indefinite space. Hence, the astounding inability to summon anything worth saying here.

    I will follow up with much articulate fervor at a later daye. Thank you for taking the time to read this comment.
