just saw this on Twitter yesterday
Matt is in over his head, what in the world…..September 16, 2023 at 7:05 pm #8126MarieGuest
Gutenberg was the beginning of the end, I swear. It’s all his private investors trying to compete with Wix and SquareSpace, open source community be damnedSeptember 16, 2023 at 7:06 pm #8128JanetGuest
Why has @wordpressdotcom replicated the entire https://t.co/oTA9NDVkFk plugin directory on its .com domain name? Searching for some plugin names now results in the .com page ranking higher than .org. F**k the long term health of the FOSS project, let's make some money, right? pic.twitter.com/UD40BN3Z6g

Here comes the calls to boycott WordPress.org from plugin devs lolSeptember 16, 2023 at 7:12 pm #8130SandraGuest
Matt’s shameless cognitive dissonance trying to defend Automattic’s decisions over the years just keeps getting more hilarious
He’s now angrily insulting everyone on Twitter who questions this move
went from “the open web!” guy on Reddit to a pig without any morals in less than a decade really sad to seeSeptember 16, 2023 at 7:17 pm #8132BillyGuest
just another in a long list of insanity, like allowing users to sexually harass and trash talk developers but censoring them if they decide to respond publicly
FOR FREE SOFTWARE CONTRIBUTIONS
🧵We’ve decided to stop supporting our plugins on the https://t.co/XotNQ25A47 free forums. Up until today, we’d treat every user or customer equally.
In 7 years of supporting FREE users, we’ve been called names, accused of “stealing,” threatened, and, least but not last…

allowing users to sexually harass and trash talk developers
I mean, Matt did hire Joost, and that was after he was exposed for being a serial sexual harasser on social media. Seems like part of the brand?September 16, 2023 at 7:22 pm #8134RogerGuest
Sarah is definitely getting fired for this postSeptember 16, 2023 at 7:26 pm #8135DianeGuest
so what does this mean? WordPress.com is trying to outrank WordPress.org on Google search results or more sinister than thatSeptember 16, 2023 at 7:28 pm #8136MariaGuest
Sarah is way too based to work for Automattic.September 16, 2023 at 7:30 pm #8137RobertGuest
Matt just blocked Se on Twitter… dude can’t handle any criticism, esp. accurate criticism that’s written extremely politely
I was explaining to my friend—who uses #WordPress for her book and writing websites, but is not at all in the WP community—the issue of https://t.co/r7hmiawNpW cloning the https://t.co/VKlJfw6XxS plugin directory.
Her reply perfectly illustrates the problem: pic.twitter.com/tBROEN6X4J
