    and it won’t let the author of the post it eats to edit it or comment on it. And now that I have made this post, there’s no evidence of it left for me to link to but it was at:

    feedback.pdxradio.com/forums/topic/trump-tells-evangelical-rally-he-will-put-prayer-in-schools/

    but now it’s gone.

    It’s there now Andy. The engine that detects “spam” posts has been working a lot of overtime lately. I am trying to see how to get it to work more accurately. Sorry for the problemas.

    It just did it again, so I changed the first sentence of my reply post (so it wouldn’t see it as something I just posted which it apparently thinks is spam) and reposted it. So there is no need for you to repost it, but I thought I’d let you know that the bug remains. Here’s the post for reference: https://feedback.pdxradio.com/forums/topic/k103-the-80s-90s-and-today/page/2/#post-43759 which later became https://feedback.pdxradio.com/forums/topic/k103-the-80s-90s-and-today/page/2/#post-43761

    Looks like I was right about what I posted earlier (https://feedback.pdxradio.com/forums/topic/front-page-appears-to-be-fixed/) about the ad-infinitum editing bug/feature. I tried to manually invoke edit mode on one of my posts from several years ago, here as well as on a different site that uses the same software that had recently updated, and in both cases it just redirect-looped back to the thread.

    It would appear that WordPress really did FINALLY get round to patching it. That only took, what, 15 years? So it’s a start.

    Personally, *I* would have written it to throw up an error message instead of just kludging it to go into a redirect loop, but obviously these things take time, as we’ve seen. Little tiny baby steps. Give a kid an old 8mm camcorder and some tapes, and years from now he might become an Oscar-winning director. Maybe someday the WordPress people might develop and refine their programming skills to the point they’re actually capable of writing a borderline-reliable and secure CDN.
