Frank, did you ever track the bug down that was causing this issue? I've tried that same article with a few different Micropub clients and I'm not seeing any issues with respect to Post Kinds finding and displaying the correct/expected data. In fact, the Atlantic actually shows quite a bit more data than most sites do.
Perhaps it's your shortcut not actually sending a URL for it to parse? I've also seen issues when trying to post content that contains special characters or emojis which WordPress tends to choke on and not understand. When a post has an emoji in the title or the body somewhere, it creates the post, but doesn't save any of the data in Post Kinds' context-related fields.
@vv4rner While I love what RSS enables and there's a huge ecosystem for it, I am against it for DRY reasons. It's stable in the fact that no one has iterated on it in over a decade. It also helps that WordPress core handles a lot of the admin tax for me on maintaining it, but it has caused metacrap issues for me in the past.
So what to do to replace RSS? If you look at most of my content, I've got the HTML marked up with (richer) microformats for those who'd like to consume that directly without needing a side file for it. There's an existing ecosystem of microformats parsers and even social readers that use microformats over RSS. Incidentally microformats are also part of the semantic layer that makes site-to-site converstions on IndieWeb-based sites work better.
@JamieTanna @fiinixdesign @hdv Try any platform (social or otherwise) that will let you add a public link to the webpage you're responding to, then use a service for sending them manually. Tumblr, WordPress, etc. should work, though may not be pretty.
@jaybearca The Webmention plugin only does notifications. You also need the semantic linkbacks plugin for the parser which will give you the richer data you're looking for.

@Cambridgeport90 I've been doing some more experimenting lately. Usually I use Known for quicker replies to specific social media. Otherwise I primarily use my WordPress site for almost everything else.
Wishing I was at #WCUS today to hear my friend Tantek Çelik @t, web standards lead @Mozilla & @CSSwg, talk on "Take Back Your Web"
@tElizaRose @tw2113 I've been taking some time off/away from it in the late summer, but I've got some pieces (esp. for/from #WordPress perspective) started:
@hankchizljaw There's also @withknown & @WordPress which also have webmention support for site-to-site communication in addition to all the other #IndieWeb tech @keithjgrant mentioned. Next we just need the microsub solution widely distributed https:/
@finiteeyes Congratulations on what appears to be a new site. As you think about public/private and provide an example to others, I'm curious if your comments are avatar-less on purpose or if you've just not come across Gravatar yet?
Katie, I think if you cut and paste all your text/html and paste it into the Text editor instead of the Visual Editor, it will all render properly when you re-save your post.
