Since our guest couldn’t make it due to illness, Marcus Couch and I took the opportunity to thank all of the wonderful listeners who responded to our call to action in episode 169. I followed up the first segment with a 10-15 minute rant beginning at 13:25 on WP Drama. Marcus and I agree that it’s a dismissive term and doesn’t offer anything productive to the WordPress ecosystem. After the rant, we discuss the news of the week and Marcus gives his two-word review of Ghost.

Hey Jeff, I pretty much ignore twitter nowadays, especially re. any kind of drama, for the same reasons you mentioned. So I’m glad if you or anyone else gives more thought to an issue that may have some merit or lead to greater thought. Maybe it would help if you clarified that intention when you take on some of these topics. Remind us that what may be seem like a non-issue can be seen differently by others, and there might be something to learn from them.
