WordPress is Fat

I’ve been digging through WordPress files since lunch, trying to figure out what should be a simple if/else statement and I have come to the conclusion that, while WP is great for the average user who isn’t going to change many things, this is one the single most bloated content management systems I have ever seen. The functions file is 1800 lines long. You have to follow a bread crumb trail of files through a maze of folders just to change simple things. I am exhausted. And now i’m done complaining.
