Ignoring it means that all of the chicken littles will continue to squawk
about the end of the world and silence from the devs will be interpreted as
either colusion or a behind-the-scenes cover-up that the devs are secretly
working on to fix without admitting there is a problem.
I've seen it all before, and it sucks the life out of the forum volunteers
as they have to devote energy to explain to the majority of non-fear
There is also a negative impact when one posts an item titled "Don't worry,
WordPress is safe". It shows doubt. If Mark fears is concerned the privacy
of his poison (plug-ins), then he should toss a blank index in the plug-ins
directory. If you accept his argument and post clarifications about this
so-called 'vulnerability', what will be next?
People could start a commotion over other aspects which are consiered more
serious 'vulnerabilities'. Users could argue about serious matters like the
reluctance to lock WordPress after a particular number of failed logins
(still?) or the disclusion of 'out of the box' DDOS attack protection.
