It was a few days ago; did you get one? I suddenly registered that there was a rainbow band across the top of my blog, on every page, incl the Stats and Reader. It’s not on my actual blog site, but firmly everywhere else.
I couldn’t see it on other blogs though, so last night I Googled it: ‘Why rainbow on WordPress blog?’
Google offered me 2 other people who’d asked the same question of WordPress, both of whom were cranky, saying ‘get this rainbow off my site!’
Here’s the WordPress reply:
Australia will be holding a national survey on marriage equality over the next two months. To show our support for marriage equality, we’re showing the rainbow bar to all our Australian visitors. You can read more about the marriage equality campaign here: http://www.equalitycampaign.org.au/
We cannot remove this banner for individual sites. We understand it looks a bit different to what you’re used to, but it’s here for everyone. We absolutely respect your right to publish the content you choose to your site, but the navigation bar styling reflects WordPress.com’s stance as a company.
The rainbow bar will remain until after the survey results are released, on November 15.
If this causes you to choose to leave WordPress.com, we’re sorry to see you go. You can find documentation on how to move your site here: https://move.wordpress.com/
We can also assist your move with our Guided Transfer service: https://en.support.wordpress.com/guided-transfer/
WORDPRESS, I FUCKEN LOVE YOU FOR THIS!
