As a child, I was always tempted to press the Fire Emergency button on the elevator. I did it once when I was 5 and an extremely loud alarm bell rang. It scared the mess out of me and made me cry. I never did it again.
I was also tempted to dial 911. I did that when I was 8. A police officer showed up at my house and my parents grounded me. I never did that again.
Even though I’m grown, I still get tempted to press forbidden buttons. I know I’m not the only one who has wondered what would happen if you liked your own blog post. I mean, who can’t use a little more blog-love now and then? I decided to give into the impulse. I can’t guarantee I won’t do it again. I actually enjoyed getting zinged.
Well played, WordPress. Well played.
