Do you think I ask for this because I'm bored and can't think of
anything else to do on a Thursday? Do you realise how incredibly
annoying this is when we have to continually defend WordPress? Do you
realise how many times this has happened before and that we KNOW a post
by Matt shuts them all up? No? Right, trust me okay?

I'll be honest though - if it wasn't for the dashboard I think something
may well have been posted.
