So, I got in a "fight" on the Wordpress forum while trying to solve the missing WYSIWYG button problem. I posted followups on dozens of topics where people claimed to have the same problem as me. I asked them if they had fixed their problems permanently, or if the problems had re-emerged after refreshing w/o clearing the cache. Evidently, my brute-force shotgun interrogation strategy was not appreciated by the moderators. So they deleted my posts. Oh well.
I doubt the Wordpress community tried to be malicious. But neither did they try to be helpful. They were just "blah". They didn't answer my questions. My interaction with them just sucked away hours of my life. And those weren't even creative hours. See, when I'm on here complaining about Wordpress, at least I'm writing words that I have the potential of reading later. But not so on the Wordpress forum. My words there are gone forever. What a waste.
Well, this is even more "evidence" that I am probably better off writing my own CMS instead of trying to join some pre-existing pack of geek-sheep. Wordpress is not polished enough for me yet. It just isn't. Sure, a lot of people will say "an unpolished diamond in the hand is better than a polished diamond buried in the sand near a camp full of rebels", but I don't know…
I guess it all depends on how annoying the blemishes are. Wordpress's unreliable editing window is super-annoying. Like Jennifer Connelly's character in "Blood Diamond". Super-duper annoying.
