Today's lesson: Medium is bad. They've suspended our account and blocked access to all our published stories for bogus reasons and with only 12 hours notice.

We don't even write about cryptocurrencies at all…

@ekaitz_zarraga @Technowix @Gargron @Liberapay no one should be subjected to wordpress, better solution: static blog with pelican.

@jeff Yeah, whatever.

I have a wordpress thing and it just works. In the case of liberapay people it's ok for them to use Pelican, but I don't think it's a real solution for *everyone*.

Anyway, I agree with you in the 95%.

@ekaitz_zarraga just as long as it's managed by people who have time to clean up any shells that get dropped on the server, in the case of self hosted wordpress it is very unlikely to happen for "most people".

@jeff It's easy to have a wordpress. I know many places which sell VPS's for wordpress.

@ekaitz_zarraga wordpress.com has great wordpress hosting, as long as you don't install loads of pluggins and someone else manages the security it's sufficient, much less of a pain to run a static file blog via something like github pages.

I've been messing around with Hugo recently. Pretty nice.
