Has it ever come to the mind that something is going wrong on how the community is approached?
Has it ever come to the mind that some software implementations have gone to hastily with negative effects? That the community reacts the way it does now, is because they care very much about the site and they notice something is terrible going wrong on WMF side and too less is done to fix those problems/issues! Apparently nothing (or not enough) has been learned from the VE 2013 fiasco.
