I wonder why many say the best publishing system are really slow. Someone says that 10000 comments is enough to slow down the WordPress, other says that a lot of traffic may slow WordPress.
I've never believed in the first claim. I have a blog now with WordPress 9085 comments, 755 articles, 5 pages, 4 categories with 1219 keywords. None of the slowness has never been, day unique 600-1000.
23 queries 0.292 seconds now to homepage. I think the WordPress is fast and i enjoy it as it is. There is no better yet nobody did! Thank you developers!
And sorry my poor English but best regards from Finland. We all love WordPress!
