Hello Dolly

This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong.

High time we got rid of this plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

Don't see the point of still including this plugin by default with WordPress. High time we got rid of it. Anyone who wants can still download and install it, after all.

Why is this plugin still a part of wordpress?
By , for WP 3.5.1


I am part of a company that uses WordPress as a website solution.

We are getting queries whenever we demo WordPress about this little plugin that gets installed by default.

Every time we need to delete it before we show clients.

I know it has sentimental value and was in since day one. But for companies or freelancers offering this as a solution, it can be embarrassing. Some not so savvy with websites may think it is a hacker plugin.
