Exchanging comments yesterday with a fellow blogger, I became annoyed again with how WordPress has forced that stupid block editor on its users and community, with no option to continue using the Classic editor. Below are my opening thoughts in the chat yesterday:
Thanks for your time. I have the Business Plan and am using the Classic Editor plugin. I have read so many blogs lately that talk about the changes made for them by WP, especially the block editor. Most people don’t like it including me. Why does WP feel that it’s OK to force these changes on blog owners? It’s not OK. Nobody really wants your new editor. And, will my plugin be taken away too, thereby forcing me to use the dumb block thing? This could force me off of WP.
The chat went on for about ten minutes, to make this long story short, I do not believe that WordPress truly gives a shit about their users, or customers if you prefer. The person on the other keyboard did a masterful job of smooth-talking with me and I just don’t buy it. Since I have the overpriced Business Plan, I still use the classic editor, but the cost to be able to retain such basic features is too much in my view. Shame on WordPress and its greedy business.
