For the third day in a row, WordPress is frustrating my efforts at posting things correctly.
It dropped (as in deleted; not as in introduced — goddam Engadget for twisting the meaning of that word!) text that appeared whole in the preview.
And it just did it again with this post, before it was posted!
In the Visual/Code window, text was deleted. Yet in the Post Preview below it, the text was whole. After hitting Save and Continue Editing, the text was then deleted!
So beware of weird shit that might appear. I don’t modify posts unless I catch a typo. Then I usually just correct the typo without any mention. When things need to be actually changed, I use strikethrough, as I did in this post.
