I'm stepping back from WordPress core involvement for a few months because the atmosphere around here lately stinks. I'm a fan of Gutenberg, but when valid criticism is *continually* met with defensiveness and correction instead of open-mindedness, it's not healthy for anyone.

I've read about accessibility problems, and only then realized how poorly accessible is. Overall it feels a modern editor, but also a turning point in WP, for good and bad. I hope it will prompt a review of the WP project, maybe bring LTS and true semver, among other things.

😞 I hope my post was not the final straw here. I didn’t mean for it to be a combative thing, but I probably don’t write enough posts to clearly articulate my thoughts. We need people like you in the community.

I got out of Slack for a bit because I was feeling the same, and I feel much better. It was consuming a lot of my time and energy.

Wow, I’ve been concerned around Gutenberg and WordPress of late, but I never believe everything I read. Now, reading your feelings John, this is clearly a real issue. I just hope that the powers that be take you seriously Sir, as you are such an inspiration to us all.

Thank you for your contribution, I personally learned a lot from your work and your WordCamp talks. I hope you'll have a good time away from wp-core and come back fully-charged at some point.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm not going far, and I'll get straight back into things in the new year. In the meantime I'll be working with a team at Human Made building some *very* cool stuff on Gutenberg for an enterprise client :-)

Hey John, thanks for the Billion (get it?) patches to Core, and, much more importantly, keeping WordPress secure!
