WordPress cluelessness

It is amazing that any mere mortal would have the patience to set up a WordPress.org blog, given the paucity of understandable documentation and the many obstacles. Additionally, the software does things that are normally verboten, e.g., sending a login and password in the same email.

In addition to all of its other vagaries, WordPress apparently also behaves like a pouting child. When you attempt to make such things as the “Author” field consistent, it thoughtfully deletes all of the previously-posted Authors. Nice going, WordPress!
