An Open Letter to WordPress

Dirty Laundry
Be Mindful of Where You Air Your Laundry

Dear policymakers at WordPress:

Imagine my surprise when I responded to a comment left on my blog this morning on my phone and saw that WordPress had placed an unsolicited ad on my posting. This might be slightly less offensive had I been using the free WordPress platform, but I am not. I pay for my domain and website so the fact that WordPress now thinks they can place these ads on my website that I pay for without my permission is beyond my comprehension. And guess what, the privilege of NOT having these ads? It will cost me more than what I pay for my domain and website each year.

WordPress, I respectfully ask that you get the hell off my website and I shouldn’t have to pay you to do that. Dumb policy.

To my followers, please tell me what you think since you are the ones inflicted with these ads when you leave a comment.

  1. I haven’t noticed any ads, or maybe I’m so busy I just tune them out. Anyway, hope you contacted WordPress about this…

    I am weary of constantly being “marketed to”. It’s intrusive. You make a salient point – you pay for the domain and therefor should be able to control its content. I’m glad you pointed this out to them.
