I say this from time to time in conversation, thought I’d drop it here:

I love WordPress. I develop using it for my job and for my own projects, I write (occasionally) using it, and I suggest it as a tool for content-based websites all the time. I also hate it. If I thought WordPress was perfect just the way it is, I wouldn’t work on core. It’s the love that gets me through the ಠ_ಠ moments and drives me to want to see if I can do something about it beyond idle complaints.
