comment Is a user_meta research case-sensitive or not
Edited my answer to be more specific. Real answer is that it depends on what collation your database uses, and over time, the defaults have changed, so what results you get depend on when you created your database and how.

comment WP_Filesystem in custom customize control
Why would you write to the filesystem to cache anything? Transients exist. Or, just store the css code in an option or theme mod. Clearly, we're missing some reasoning here.

comment WP_Filesystem in custom customize control
What exactly are you doing with the filesystem that requires you to do this in the customize_register hook? This makes no real sense I can think of. What is the need for this chunk of code to write to the filesystem?

comment get_option() vs get_theme_mod(): Why is one slower?
There is no reason for any sort of speed difference there, so I suspect something else is causing your perceived differences. Theme mods are stored as options themselves.

comment Do we have to use ftp to recover from a bad functions.php edit?
Please pass this link along anytime you see a tutorial suggesting that. Even I suggested this sort of thing in the past, however we were all wrong. Themes should remain themes and not receive random code for random reasons.

Please tell the reviewer that he is mistaken and incorrect, and refer him to me or the theme-reviewers mailing list if he has questions on the topic.

comment How do I reset a rewrite?
Just, like, undo whatever you did you make the rewrite in the first place? Your question is a bit vague. It's hard to provide an answer to something with so little information to work with. Please improve your question.

I discovered this same problem on my own site today. Definitely some kind of problem with W3, haven't been able to track it down yet.

comment Enforcing password complexity
The $errors parameter is an instance of a WP_Error object. In PHP, object variables are really aliases (or pointers, if you like) to the actual instance of the object. Thus, passing them "by reference" is more or less the default. The variable is passed by value, but the value is a pointer to the instance of the object. Thus, using the & for pass by reference on variables which hold object instances is unnecessary and really makes no sense.
