Great job WordPress.com you’ve managed to do something that has made the majority of WordPress.com angry.
Today WordPress.com announced on their blog they were releasing Possibly Related Posts a feature which uses Sphere to find related posts and put them at the bottom of your blog. Sounds useful but it sucks, so far I haven’t been able to get them to show up on my blog at all and people who can get it to work say it doesn’t display the most related thing it can find.
But anyone who has ever used Sphere would know that the results were less than satisfactory. Some African American bloggers are even reporting their posts linking to far right white supremacist blogs, racist content which shouldn’t even exist on WordPress.
We’ll looks like after the 2.5 upgrade WordPress.com has managed to make us angry again. What next WordPress, what next?
