  1. Since the front page hasn’t changed in format in a while and each post is still showing three nearly consecutive titles with identical wording, I thought I might mention it.

    As I see it, this is either because you never look at the front page and so haven’t noticed it or because you are engaged in some nefarious “What I tell you three times is true” mental manipulation. In the unlikely event that it’s not the latter, you might want to take a look. And if it is the latter, you might want to stick to imperative mood and avoid questions in post titles.

    Because that might be what broke the spell and allowed me to question your motives.

    Just sayin’.

      Something weird is going on with the Featured Image function (which tells social media which image to pick.) Our web guru has been looking into it.
