WordPress - Matt's reply

Matt Mullenweg's response to the WordPress - search engine spam scandal:

The articles hosted content thing was just a short-term experiment, an interesting idea (original and relevant Wikipedia-type content on the site) that was badly implemented. As an experiment it could have been conducted much better than it was. The content should have been more topical to WP issue, I should have kept up with the content that was going up, the links should have never had the overflow CSS, and I should have discussed it with more people. Each was a mistake and they combined badly - I'm very sorry.

I take full responsibilty for how it was implemented. It was wrong, and it wasn't thought through

Good intention. Bad execution
