Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m paranoid. Maybe, my obsession with the comment indicator is way too out-of-bounds. But I don’t think so.
For the last several days, the square on the WP activity bar that lights up orange when someone comments about a post or replies to one of my comments, is staying lit. That is, once I check the comments and click it off, it lights up again the next time I open WP, regardless of whether there is a new comment or not. Or, even worse, it lights up again any time I move from page to page. But it’s the same old comments….nothing new. Once in a while, due to the proverbial law of averages, there will be a new comment, but I have to sort all that out myself.
Most of you already know that I have no life beyond WordPress. I believe I made that abundantly clear to WP in this post: “The Bubble Glow Dream.” Well, just because it’s a square now and not a bubble hasn’t changed a thing. I think the sadist WP techs get some perverse thrill out of getting me all worked up just to dash my hopes to smithereens. If they had been born in an earlier age, they might have made big names for themselves in the Third Reich.
Has anyone else experienced this? I don’t really have delusions of persecution normally (even though I know for a fact that the whole world is out to get me), but is this only happening to me? I need your input. If it is more widespread than I suspect, maybe we could petition the head WordPress IT guy to have a little meeting with us. I picture that meeting going something like this:
