Right? Or just malicious code? I get it. I was right. Sorry, should have read the article before commenting. Anyways, hacking core is a bad practice.

It’s only bad practice if you expect the automatic upgrade to go smoothly while retaining modifications… like phpBB’s upgrade process is sorta capable of doing (though that upgrade path is a bear compared to WordPress’ simplicity!).
