This is really starting to piss me off. You guys have a great project going on here, with lots of potentials, and you are pretty much killing it with your own hands.
What i'm talking about here, is the amount of restrictions that WP.com has. No plugins, no file editing, no Adsense, no Analytics...
Don't get me wrong here, i love wordpress and love all what it stands for and that's why i left blogger to come here. Hell, wordpress is one of the first application that made me fall in love with PHP/mysql.
I understand the way you're service works and the reasons why you're not offering these services, but they're no excuse, if you guys can offer people 3 GB worth of space, then you are pretty much able to have every blogger run his own copy. And have the resources to at least let people run their own services.
Again, i'm saying this not because i hate WP, but because i like it and think that you have the ability and power to grow but you're just taking too damn slow
