The image above is a screenshot which I took earlier today. Besides the large number of open tabs what do you see? Yes, you are bang on target! Wait! But we see false messages like this on website which are not good enough to surf right? Then what is that thing, the line, doing there?
WordPress now has to fool it’s users in order to get feedback. Now we get hoax messages right on our WordPress dashboard! What do you expect when you get a message something like”Congratulations, you win the prize! The chance to take our 5 second survey 🙂” The first thing that came to my mind was that WordPress was hacked. The second thought that came to my mind was that WordPress is giving me something for free, for instance free hosting. But what I actually won was a survey! I ask you all! Have you ever been as lucky as I was today? Have you my friend ever been lucky enough to win a survey?
WordPress no doubt wanted to make a fool out of its users. The sentence has been beautifully crafted in order to deceive us and save the as***s of WordPress employees as well. But the point is, was it required? I’ll not say much here but rather leave to you, my readers. Please leave your views as comments.
