Why Me? May 1st: Why is this insane issue continuing? Dear WordPress representative, I am receiving notices from WordPress: “ Congrats! Tiny Life is getting noticed.” while I’m still unable to like any blogs! This situation is schizophrenic! Please take the necessary measures to reinstate my capacity to like blogs! Sincerely, Alessandra Scarpulla Hello, I’m still being punished for […]The-Not-Being-Able-To-Like-Any-Blogs-Saga-Continues! – Episode 3 — Tiny Life
Here’s another blogger who is in the same predicament as I. She has been flagged and doesn’t know when the Lords of WordPress plan to remove the flag. Know that I’m with you, Alessandra! God bless you, sweetie! 💖And we will never give up blogging. We will fight the good fight.

Thank you so much! 💖
How frustrating! It’s the lack of power and control! Ugg, xxoo, C
Absolutely. I think that the Self-Proclaimed Lords of WP and of Big Tech have become drunk on their own power and no longer care about the customer. I’m hoping that Big Tech will be dismantled in the future because this is happening on all different platforms. It’s a power play is what it is.
Since a few weeks I see that the option to “like” a blog from my email preview pane has been removed, but the “comment” option remains. If I want to like a blog post I need to hit comment and scroll up to hit the like button. I just thought this was a new development the WP team had done.
Am I in purgatory as well?
I don’t know, Tamara. I’m so sorry Automattic has disabled your like button. I do think it’s a new thing because, I got flagged in May and I’d never had this happen in my 6 years of blogging.
I’ve had that happen to me a couple of times, but the ability to “like” blog posts has come back after a day or two. Not sure what the explanation is.
I got an email from them and they accused me of “bot-like behavior” for “overengagement.” Their words. It’s crazy.
This is just crazy! 🙁 Hang in there, both of you!
Thank you so much, Celt! 💖💖💖
Cherie, you are handling it a lot better than I would have. I would be screaming conspiracy and how modern technology is out to get me. Hope it gets sorted soon for both of you.
Nah. I’m not going to let them do that. They picked the wrong person if they think they’re going to emotionally manipulate somebody. I’m just going to sit back and let them screw themselves.
Love it 😂
Thank you so much, Michael. I just can’t let them reduce my behavior.
UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think everyone has lost their minds and common sense! Sending love and best wishes! Leigh
Thank you so much, Leigh. I appreciate you more than you know. ❤️❤️❤️
Oof. How frustrating.
Isn’t it, though. But…the show must go on. 🙂
I wouldn’t worry about it. In fairness there are a ton of bots on all the sites. Also tech sites are constantly changing so it is not a problem likely to be fixed. It is a nice luxury to like a blog but in the grand scheme it doesn’t matter. What matters is the interaction and are people reading the various blogs. You can like a blog or website and rarely or never read a thing which is more or less stacking numbers but not reading content or responding to it. I noticed that is a problem on Twitter big time. The like thing is a gesture but doesn’t ultimately matter either way.
True, Max. However, I can’t even follow the blogs I like. But I can put them on my blog roll to keep up with their blogs. And that’s the closest thing to following them. 😊
Cherie I just found you again. Ignore these problem. Many happy engineers work around the world. It’s pot luck who you get 🤣 keep going until you find a real one. ” Bot like management” is not an Happy Engineer statement . Are you on org or . com ? Org is awful. .com is good.
I’m on .Com. Thank you so much for this, Peace. This means more than you know. And I won’t give up. Unfortunately, the happiness Engineers work for Automattic. They get their marching orders from the top.
This is now happen,g to me, too! So irritating!
I feel your pain, Ana Maria. My heart goes out to you. I hate to say it and I hope like the devil I’m wrong. But I have a bad feeling that this is going to happen to more and more bloggers from here on out. 😔
‘There was a problem, try again later….. still waiting after 7 years.
My heart goes out to you, Adam. It’s sad when they keep you in limbo for that long. It’s safe to say that they don’t ever intend to help you after that long. I believe that these people like to pick and choose the blogs that succeed and those that fail. However, this blog won’t fail. It might move to another platform, but it won’t fail. Thank you so much for sharing your issue of WP with us. Wishing you all the best.
Thank you, Haneet.
Oy, that’s so annoying 😤
You bet it is. And I’m seeing more and more bloggers getting trapped in this little power-trip that the self-proclaimed gods of automattic are on.
