Colour blind

Yesterday I noticed the above coloured banner across the top of the main page of my blog. I didn’t order it to be placed there, nor did I have anything to do with its appearance and have written to WordPress requesting its removal.

I am colour blind as far as race, sexual orientation, religion and politics, and I am not in favour of any symbols being shown on my blog, for or against anything, unless I make the post.

I pay WordPress for the blog, so being the ultimate customer I consider that I have the right to post / remove what ever I want.

The various WordPress blogs that I follow also have the same coloured banner included on their main page, and I wonder how many have agreed to such an intrusive inclusion.

My original idea was to post a blog about 11.00 am on Sunday the 3rd of September seventy eight years ago, because today is also Sunday the 3rd of September, but in 2017.

Traveled a great deal - about 80 countries - first foreign country I suppose was Wales, which was only 80 miles away from where I was born. Visited each Continent, except Antarctica, and I doubt that it is on my bucket list - too cold. I love Asian food, Australian wine & British beer & trying to entertain by writing.

  1. Do you have the coloured banner across your blog? Since posting yesterday I am beginning to think that the banner is only shown in Australia, on Australian produced blogs, and on overseas blogs opened in Australia. I opened your blog and the banner shows, but if I am correct the banner will not be visible to you. Friends in NZ tell me that the banner isn’t visible in their country.
