There was a time when #wordpress was the place for help.  Matt has
consistently steered people away from #wordpress because he wants
people to use the forums.  His rationale is legitimate, but Matt's
preferences do not coincide with everyone else's.

Matt consistently refuses to assign ops to anyone in #wordpress on a
regular basis in order to keep it on topic.

How many other projects have a general #project channel with a
separate #project-help channel?
