Writer still leaves turd in your blog… and in your feed. So this morning I could clearly see how of my favorite bloggers downloaded the new release. This Technorati search currently finds 4682 instances of “turd”. Google Blog Search finds over 14K occurences. How come Microsoft still did not find a way to detect stylesheets without this mess? (incidentally the detection still fails on my blog system)
There’s another kind of turd … or is it more? Every time you use the new “Insert Tags” feature, it inserts a cryptic line like this, along with your tags:
The part before the “:” is constant (for your installation I suppose), the second part varies post by post. What is this? Is Big Brother watching us again? Call me paranoid, but in the wake of the HP Scandal I wouldn’t be so surprised….
Update (9/29): OK, I’ve cooled off. I don’t think this is Big Brother in action… after all it’s so easily detectable, and Microsoft has enough trouble in this are to know better. But then, WTF is this? Why do I need a unique ID in my blog posts?
