  • In the “blog stats” window on the “global dashboard,” one post of mine keeps showing a title I didn’t write. The title is “[Blah blah] global cooling,” but the window often–but not always–shows “[Blah blah] the follower.” Refresh the page and it reverts to the original. Nowhere in anything I wrote, ever, did I write “the follower.” What the heck is this?

    What are the links to the posts that show up as “the follower”? Post them here, perhaps something got inserted in your blog without you knowing about it.

    Good question, Otto42. I don’t see “the follower” now, but when I did I think I tried it once and the link was normal.
