I was browsing my database tables after upgrading to 2.8.4. What the heck??!! Why all these duplicate entries?
Then I thought to myself, "they probably put in some kind of Previous Version feature like in Windows Vista." Sure enough, I found a list of Previous Revisions in the admin pages.
I had not noticed this before and thought, okay, fine. Where's the off button?
Why no off button?
This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen from WordPress. It goes against the very philosophy of WordPress not to mention it's technically foolish. Do users really want to bloat their database every time they correct a typo or decide to italicize something after publishing? Page revisions may be helpful to SOME users but certainly not ALL users.
Listen up WordPress admins and devs:
WE NEED AN OFF BUTTON FOR PREVIOUS REVISIONS.
