Amid all the technical problems, this site has, I wonder why it has never occurred to anybody to open source the code base.
Instead of (at best) a handful of developers, there would be dozens if not hundreds taking care of the many bugs. I'm pretty sure, I'm not the only user who's a professional programmer.
And let's be honest: The code base of a (really buggy) blogging site is hardly the kind of intellectual property that needs to protected from the evil competition.
Considering that the software is a mess (with some recent improvements) and has been for a very long time, I reckon this would be a smart move.
Best for all
