    can’t seem to access my admin panel at all

    Wow this sucks big time…

    Any good alternatives for 1 click caching plugins?

    Just moved all my sites to WP Super Cache much less hassle W3 Total Cache IMHO

    really lame move by the developers. It’s like they don’t know what it’s like to run many sites that will all, at once, start runnign more slowly… or how that will affect our client relationships.

    this will cost me and my clients money to resolve… with no notice and no explanation.

    you guys need to get your act together at WF. really lousy move

    I disagree 100% – Security plug-ins should focus on one thing – security.

    There are plenty of other caching plug-ins to choose from.
