NOT! I'm not buying that! Every time WP does one of their automatic updates something stops working on my site. You didn't answer the question for mleisse so I'll ask it again:
"The upgrades are killing plugins that I use on my site. It should be MY call as to whether or not I go to the next version of WordPress. I need to make sure that EVERYTHING on my site is compatible with the new version before upgrading. And if something is not compatible, I need to allow the developer time to fix it. I should be able to disable automatic upgrades. This is poor customer service." (posted by member mleisse)
I don't see where you offer to "fix" the mess your updates cause. Most of my media library is GONE; my stat counter plugin is GONE; and I can't upload images or any other media. My site worked fine before WP updated it! I don't see in your TOS where I agreed to allow this kind of ****.
Why should I have to go looking for ways to fix YOUR mess??
I'm considering looking for a WP replacement and I'm posting a blog about this "We'll screw up your blog if we want to" attitude.
