I love the Wordpress software and hate Wordpress.com. The biggest mistake I made was going from WP.org to WP.com. You end up paying more, but you get less. I get access to the WP community feed which is great, but they want to charge up to 3 times more for plugin access, which I soon discover after the 30 day refund policy, was more important then I thought. I should have stayed with self hosting.
