A Twenty Seventeen Child Theme

A while back I wrote a thing about using the More tag in Twenty Seventeen theme, and because this site uses a (hastily put together) child theme of WordPress Twenty Seventeen theme, and I described that in a little detail, people started coming into this site looking for that.

Hey isn’t there a simple Twenty Seventeen child theme I can just download and get hacking away at? I wondered. There wasn’t. At least, I couldn’t see one.

Let’s discuss about it!

More spam from Steve Blackmon arrived today. Delightful. If you got a similar message to this, it is 100% spam.

SIDEBAR – interestingly, people actually looking up the phrase “discuss about it” are landing here, I think looking for grammatical advice. Those people, “let’s discuss about it!” is (basically) “wrong” grammatically speaking, because “discuss” itself means to talk about something, rendering the word “about” in this phrase redundant. “Let’s discuss it!” would be sufficient. Don’t Repeat Yourself. DRY.

In any case, the spam had this grammatically incorrect title is copied in below. Because I for some reason decided to publish these here spams… perhaps because they get past my spam filter.

Escorted tours for single travellers – a comfortable way to holiday alone in 2019!

Over the years, I’ve commented a lot on general trends in online shopping, and particularly about retail, and various “disruptions” which have occurred, but one thing which has been around for a while, and is seeing a boon since the baby boom generation has started retiring in earnest is escorted holiday tours for single travellers.
