    has the WP community become so big, and people so desperate to make money online, they are willing to trash all competitors who are not part of their affiliate link tribe? this atmosphere seems to pervade WP community for years already.

    IMO this is like asking “why is there so much tribalism on Facebook?” or any other monopoly type of community. WordPress is cool, but the software and logic is not amazing, they got in the market at the perfect moment like Facebook and so everyone started using and learning WordPress, and many competitors (even better ones) died.

    So when there’s so much market saturation, it’s more just asking like “why do humans trash each other so much to get ahead”

    and that’s a big question above my pay grade I think

    The leadership of WordPress doesn’t make it better though. They actively play favorites with people like Awesome Motive and Yoast, while censoring others and banning users from wp.org they disagree with

    Also, trying to suck up to power brokers like Google.

    – play favorites
    – censor and ban people they don’t like
    – suck up to rich and powerful

    why do you think Mark Z. is Matt M. favorite idol 🤣

    WordPress community is miserable, a bunch of beta male PHP coders trying their damnedest to pretend they are political moderate Snowden geniuses on one side, and affiliate bros on the other side who couldn’t write some CSS lines if their life depended on it

    Several good posts exploring this problem, on WordPress.com no less!

    Tribalism, the biggest problem in engineering?

    and

    How about more tribes and less tribalism?

    Matt Mullenweg has created the worst software community in history. Petty insults when people make suggestions, trashing people who volunteer, and acting like a douchebag who never grows up and matures. It’s sad really, so much lost potential.
