We also recorded today’s podcast which … erm… is not entirely like that.


That’s not because we use rude words… not because we get all passionate and ranty… not even because we’ve probably insulted every honest hard-working plugin developers out there.

Nah, it’s simply that no-one can resist a warning and we don’t have an interesting guest for you this week.

A special thanks (with glitter, unicorns and stuff like that) must go out to all our friends over on the WP Builds Facebook group. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, sense of betrayal, fear for the future and insights on this topic.
