So first up I’m curious on how Blogger works for posts. Here at WordPress there is a big “Update” button and beside it is a tiny link marked “Move to Trash”. They’re pretty hard to mix up on a desktop computer screen, but maybe on a smartphone or tablet you might mash the wrong button. Still even then the post is moved to the trash where you need to manually go to the trash can page and delete it, either en-masse or individually. Its a fail safe system, which is a pain in the ass for the occasional time when I abort a blog post because I either something came up before I put any appreciable words to paper, or I decide the post isn’t worthy of Weer’d World. It really sucks to go through all of that when I’ve just written a title and decided I don’t want to write any more and need to go through all those extra steps so it doesn’t constantly remind me “There is 1 Item in Your Trash”.
Is it different for Blogger, because Joan Allegedly deleted a post by accident, and has another post up about it. I’m not buying it.
Still thankfully we live in the information age, and Joan’s post can be recreated with a little work by using the google cache for her page. I shot her the very link you just clicked just in case her mistake was honest. (If the post was legitimate then it should re-appear in all its unglory)
Still if, as I suspect, it was just an attempt to use the Memory Hole, then I’ll be nice and keep that cache here! Its just a screenshot, so links won’t work, but there it is.
What do you think, can this be done by a simple mistaken button mash, or was this a calculated move?
