Matt Is A Jerk

May 20, 2007

As I’ve blogged about multiple times over the past month, Microsoft may buy WordPress.com. All of the key people at Microsoft (specifically me, Ballmer, and Ozzie) are willing to go ahead and buy WordPress.com. The only thing that we’re waiting for is a reply from WordPress.com. I attemped to contact Matt, the CEO of Automattic (the company that owns WordPress.com), without success. After multiple attempts, all I got out of him was one email reply that made no sense. I’m getting desperate. I promised Melinda (my wife) that Microsoft would buy WordPress.com and she would get to be its director. As a last resort, today I tried contacting him on AIM. Here’s the chat:

Me: Hello

Me: So, are you planning on ignoring all of our attempts to contact you?

Me: I guess so…

Me: If you do decide to answer then you can contact me directly at Microsoft (extension 2) or via my blog fakebill.wordpress.com

Me: I really hope you don’t turn down this opportunity. It would truly be a pity for both us if you turned down this offer.

The jerk just ignored me and made me look like a fool. I’ll get him back some day… Both him and Steve Jobs are going to regret what they’ve done…

Stop Ignoring Me

May 4, 2007

I’ve had enough. WordPress.com has ignored all of my emails and attemts to contact them. I’ve tried at least five different ways, including email, wordpress’ support, Matt’s (the dude in charge of wordpress.com) blog, and the feedback form.

Matt, if you are reading this, then I’m warning you now. I’ll give you one last chance to respond to me. You have my email. Respond now. Or else.

You have no idea how embarrassing it will be if I don’t buy wordpress.com. I promissed the company to Melinda (my wife) as a birthday present. She said that she wanted something “special” this year, and I thought that it would be the perfect gift because she loves to read blogs.

I just don’t understand why wordpress.com is ignoring me. It is a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity, and they should be thanking me. Who wouldn’t want to work at Microsoft?
