Dear WordPress,

Dear WordPress,

I thought we were so good together. I thought we really had something. I wrote whatever was on my mind, you published so that all or no one could read. It was all so clean and tidy, but that has changed.

Now, when I log into my dashboard, I have ads for overseas women really wanting to hook up with me, or a listing promising me the latest mugshots, or of course, I could also click to find out if my testosterone is too low…

First of all, I’m a woman. The least you could do if you’re going to go the way of the sleezy ads is attempt to get this part right.

Second, I am a paying customer. I can almost wrap my head around the need to put ads on your site to pay the bills, but part of my paying for my blog hosting is supposed to be that I don’t deal with the ads that come with free sites.

This snuck up on me, as it’s been a while since I logged onto the WP site on an actual computer. I don’t get this trash from the mobile site or from my WP app. Why here? Why now?

I may not be a record-breaking blogger, but I have still been one of your biggest fans since 2009, and you are about to lose what once was a very happy customer.

Sincerely,

Marilyn Horton
