Mike Jordan’s post on the WordPress community has some great insight and challenging thoughts.
The truth is, however, that our community does not have these rare traits simply because its members are just that awesome. The primary reason that our community is so approachable, is that for the first several years of its life we had to be approachable to encourage growth. Now that we are becoming established and pioneering a very plausible economy, we can afford to start being elite.
