Can we collectively as an industry just calm down a little and stop lying to ourselves in a misguided attempt to inflate our sense of purpose...

I just stumbled upon a job listing for a WordPress developer position that described it as "helping solve the big problems of the day". Seriously?! Let's stop and get real you're probably just building themes. Maybe a plugin or two. So just relax and accept you're just another web developer building yet another 💩site you're not solving "the big problems"...

... Then again it IS WordPress...

    Are you saying big problems can't be solved with wp? Weird, I've solved big problems with wp.

    It could be that wordpress is the big problem of the day and they need someone to solve it.

    @darkcode I'm not directly saying it but MAY be very strongly implying it 😉

    Seriously, I'm on the side of favoring the person over the tool (most things we do can be achieved in any number of ways) - this just happened to be the self-aggrandizing job description that pushed me over the edge ... but I'm unnaturally cynical

    I mean, I would for sure call WordPress a big problem of the world
