… that you did something you thought was a good idea at the time, would serve the best purposes of everyone, and had it blow up horribly in your face?
I will not make this a commentary on the “WordPress SEO” debacle but I can and will add a vote of confidence. Matt Mullenweg is a good person, cares intensely about WordPress and its community and would not (and could not!) do anything to harm or undermine the community and software that he loves so much and has worked so hard to build and establish. He is unavailable to defend himself at this time and that makes it easier for people to level accusations without knowing all the facts or letting Matt make amends. I for one, firmly believe in Matt’s objective and in WordPress.
I will not try to anticipate how Matt is going to handle it, nor am I going to judge the events as they have transpired since I do not know the whole story.
