Jeff has a point, but it is a matter of convenience verses speed. I'll
rather have convenience where the speed difference is negligible. I'm
not convinced that Matt Mullenweg is a genius or someone I should bow
down to and worship, like say Peter Westwood or Rasmus Lerdorf. Now
those are people I can build a shrine to.
Ah, coding horrors. I can tell you of some coding horrors. None of them
have to do with WordPress, I can tell you that. Well, I could relate
past WTFs and coding horrors I've seen while working with WordPress and
trying to patch the core to fix bugs. I'm not going to, because
complaining doesn't create solutions and when you have solutions there
isn't a need to complain.
Also, they have more to do with speculation and my personal opinion, so
hopefully and I seriously mean that, I'm wrong. If I was to state
anything, it will probably be suggestions on how to not repeat the
coding horrors. All of my coding horrors with WordPress have nothing to
do with performance, but I like how the guy says that the community is
great, but fails to mention that core team is great too (there might be
a hidden message there? Maybe, but probably not). I think the community
is great too and Peter and Ryan.
