[WordPress.org](http://wordpress.org) is now back to normal. No more hidden links, no more bogus pages. [Google](http://www.google.com) has also restored WordPress.org’s [pagerank](http://www.google.com/technology/) to 8 after they temporarily changed it to zero. So, I’m now reinstating links to WordPress.org on my blog. I intended to post this right after Google has restored their pagerank, but I was still bound to my \*uh\* ‘commitment’ not to blog anymore :).
[Matt Mullenweg](http://photomatt.net) has also made available [his official response](http://photomatt.net/2005/04/01/a-response/) to this issue. Let’s now cut him some slack, everybody makes mistake :).
[HotNacho](http://hotnacho.com), the company behind all this, has also made a somewhat unofficial response at [Waxy.org](http://www.waxy.org/archive/2005/04/01/wordpres.shtml). However, considering the evidence from the comments, their response is not very convincing.
