Re: users complaining
“Andy is the only employed person working on the project. It’s so easy to ask for something. … it’s mostly a thankless and ungratifying task, but we do it because we want to help!”
Andy/Automattic is too responsive! Their focus seems to be on delivering all these requested features out of the box. It’s pulling them in too many different directions. They should have said NO and followed a strict plan to develop a coherent, solid core; users, posts, comments + privacy, security, management, API. Then let the community take over with themes and plugins.
