Been writing my personal blog on since 2006. This blocks editor thing makes me worry that WP has gone the way of Ballmer-era Microsoft, focusing on developers, developers, developers, at the expense of users, users, users

I can see from comments on social media that opinions are mixed. The people who love the blocks editor are the ones who tinker with the engineering of it. The people who hate the blocks editor are the ones who, erm, write and edit blogs

@mattedgar I use the classic editor in my posts. There's a simple plugin to restore it.

@Edent I'm on, so plugins not an option. In any case, you shouldn't need a plugin to make something simpler. If people want bells and whistles, let _them_ be the ones to add plugins
