Re: Privacy ?
If you are comparing an open source project to a car manufacturer then you don’t get it. Did you pay for BuddyPress?
Automattic is a regular company. WP is supposedly aimed at content creators, not developers. If WP/WPMU/BP lacks certain key functionality that forces users to get into coding, it fails in its mission. As a user I’m free to point that out without having to pay tribute to the developers first. I didn’t pay for WP/BP, but don’t have any obligations towards Automattic either.
@Erich73, I didn’t start turning this thread into an attack on me.
