I see what you mean, especially with the lost password and theme
In fact, a good example against a common issue sticky would be the
image uploader sticky. It seems that no one checks it because they
each think their problem is unique. Similarly, almost everyone one
with the headers already sent error thinks that not only is it unique
to them, but it is apparently either the end of the world or a
WordPress bug too.
Well, played, Sir! That's why I asked first.
