I've just realised that WordPress are only allowing positive "I love the new dashboard" comments in their announcement post:
This is unbelievable!
I've had a critical but polite comment held in moderation, yet other shiny happy posts have been approved since then. And apparently this is the case for all critical comments that people have tried to post.
Who are WordPress trying to fool? Its users?
The fact that WordPress made this change without allowing its users to beta test is bad enough.
The fact that there has been very little feedback from official support staff is also poor, but understandable if they are too busy trying to fix things.
But the fact that WordPress are trying to gloss over these problems and paint a rosy picture is really surprising.
Previously I had just put the problems with the new dashboard launch down to bad management and planning. But now I am seriously hacked off with WordPress.
Any good will I had towards them has just disappeared.
