Andy Ihnatko, Hit by the WordPress Attack

Andy Ihnatko, posting on his Posterous weblog, on being hit by the WordPress attack:

Why didn’t I update Wordpress? Because it was going to be a whole Thing. My version of WP came before the “auto-update” feature was installed. The whole procedure would have been like shampooing a wall-to-wall rug. I want to clean the rug, sure, but do I really want to move out ALL of the furniture? And all of the stuff piled up ON the furniture? Etc.
