Dear community: don’t you give a shit.
It’s them. It’s not Automattic versus the rest of “us”. It’s not Mullenweg, the dictator, aiming to put any random WordPress-based company out of business. It’s not even DIYThemes versus Automattic if you ask me.
All it is is Chris versus Matt versus Chris versus Matt.
Just let them have it out and get back to business, FFS.
