    33Instead of responding, they elevate it to a blackmail support request: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/please-dont-install-it/ Not to say that my plugin isn't without bugs or conflicts, but I think it's safe to assume, we didn't get to 50k active installs by turning people's websites into 404s and our code isn't so horrible that it makes websites into 404s without even being installed. But this new design ads to my plugin page a warning that installing this plugin will make your website 404, even after you uninstall this.

     5Maybe, I have an over-inflated sense of the value of opinions of those who have been a part of the community for a long time, develop plugins or themes and contribute to WordPress core. But, I don't think the opinion of a user who registered for WordPress.org yesterday, as is the case here, should be given that kind of value. That doesn't seem like smart systems design.

    57So assuming that I'm really not that bad of a developer, who does this help?
