IMHO if someone pays attention to you, then you should feel flattered, not offended:
I was contacted via a message sent with Gmail by a person claiming to be responsible…There are 4 key values that we find important when traveling: improving our environmental impact, deeper personal experiences, more meaningful social relations, and supporting the local economy – Less Travel
Yet, I do admit that being stalked, doxed, or anything like that feels more like an invasion of personal privacy… well, I guess that could indeed be considered offensive.
I’m pretty much guaranteed to be happy whenever I see a new post from Josepha — I simply think she is super-smart and also a very aware and sensitive person towards the people around her:
What are you particularly grateful for?Happy Thanksgiving! | Shedding Light (josepha.blog)
Too many things to mention, but obviously:
- Matt (Mullenweg)
- The WordPress community
- In particular (and also beyond the WP community): people who are not only open to collaboration, but even seek out to collaborate on projects … and here I mean particularly the willingness to engage in work with potential for rewards other than plain and simply monetary / financial interests. Granted, this requires a great deal of experience, wisdom, insight and such… so when it does show up, I do acknowledge what a great treasure and wonderful thing it is.
- These are just a few things I wish to mention here. There are also many more things I am also grateful for — for example: Holly Cole.

Our diversity of accessible knowledge we trust – that has lessened.
Not deliberately, but gradually and unknowingly – I feel I am poorer.
I’d bet most of us work in jobs that are inherently about our knowledge and experiences. Gaining more knowledge and experience leads us to more fulfilling work, maybe promotions, maybe different roles – a sense of purpose and worth. Sharing these with others for their benefit and the benefit of their work often gives us joy. Now the source of those gains is smaller, now our capacity to share is reduced are we still growing and developing as we want to?
