Designed with two core principles in mind:
make it as easy as possible to post activity to the open web in an appealing and accessible way
allow users to do so without creating accounts, or providing any required personal information

Secretly logging a “splotter” into a WordPress authoring account where they do not (and cannot) see the Dashboard.

Each SPLOT has an admin screen for configuring its features
