Thank you for your continued patience. You contacted us regarding a bug where Readability shows orange when gibberish text is used in a table. This email is to inform you the bug has been fixed so please make sure that you’ve updated your Yoast SEO plugin to the latest version v14.8.1.

I’ll be coming at you like a cup of coffee with five-hour energy replacing cream – be ready to grab on.
All merchant processors are scum-sucking thieves.
In 14 years I’ve gone through 18 merchant processors – at one time I ran 110 websites mostly affiliate stuff but I needed to take money on the web in 2004 – so this is what I’ve learned over 12 years. Not once have I had a good experience.
