Grumpy Dev Syndrome

I have discovered that my ire at a certain plugin author was not wholly justified.

It turns out that the three plugins I have began removing were retired because the “pro” all in one plugin is now free.

And now I shall quitely go away and grumble to myself in a general unfocused grumpy way.
