    55Its foolish to try and measure those who have fixed it against those who haven't and somehow decide who loses. But I will say, the businesses that make up the ecosystem around WP have already fixed it. The premium theme devs have already fixed it. They were fixing it on day 1, or even finding it during beta. They shouldn't get preferential treatment, but you know who should? Our end-users, the publishers.

    7 The reason a lot of people may not have reported it as a bug during is simply that it fits the mission of WordPress: to make publishing easier. That line break... its important to unskilled publisher who is wondering why they can't make a paragraph in their bio. That line break matters. And you gave it to them. Now you want to take it away.

    1111This is a sticky situation, I get it. But for where we are now, the failure here is no longer the half-baked rollout of a feature, per se, it is the lack of communication that got us into this mess and the heel-dragging that sees it still unresolved 8 weeks later. It is hugely irresponsibly late to revert this.
