The tests were run multiple times, giving the Apache server ample time to cache the PHP opcode.

Re: Textpattern vs WordPress Based on the Real Using Experience

Here’s another observation, fits in nicely with all the benchmarks.

On my local server, I have plain vanilla installs of Textpattern 4.5.7 and WordPress 4.2.2.

The new WordPress default Theme is light, there’s not much to it if you’ve seen it, while Phil’s default theme has a much better look and has more doodads, you know those things you click.

While getting familiar with all the bells and whistles in Firefox Developer Edition, I started playing with Network. This shows all the network activity coming from the page you’re on, the files it retrieved, from where, time in milliseconds, really cool.

So I fired up Textpattern 4.5.7 – 3 requests, 38.94KB, 0.20s time to render page.
Then it was WordPress 4.2.2 – 9 requests, 254.81KB, 0.56s time to render page

So out the starting gate, with the simplest page imaginable, WordPress lags behind.

lol. Yep. Many of the questionable content funnel schemes, in English, are actually done by people who have neither writing nor native-English skills.

That’s not to say all native-English speakers posing as writers are any better. You might enjoy this as much as I did, B2B Content Marketing Has a Huge Problem, which is, of course, a good piece of content marketing. ;)

I read an interesting thing a while ago about wording of adult ad creative – generally speaking, the writing style used, especially in adult ads, deliberately includes grammatical errors and spelling mistakes so that smart folks will ignore them; the less-than-smart demographic is the one they’re aiming for.

You would think “adult” ads would be on sites that were already p0rny in nature, so the audience distinction doesn’t make sense; everyone there is already looking at adult content. The ads are appropriately in context to the content. If the ads were not on such sites (i.e., publisher suicide), they would likely get everyone’s attention anyway — the wrong kind — for being out of place, perhaps offensive.

I’m inclined to think that’s an urban myth, or an adult ad writer’s excuse for being a crappy writer. Let’s admit, it’s usually not words that such ads are employing for success. I’m guessing animated gifs are the norm.

Wait, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, WordPress… lol.

Possibly. I’m talking anecdotally, in the main. Which reminds me of this (somewhat NSFW) article:

Totally. My theory (it’s a guess): A lot of the poor grammar on many site’s postings (adult or otherwise) is coming from posting on smart phones. Fat fingering and the annoying auto complete feature.
