Hello Dolly


This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong: Hello, Dolly. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Hello, Dolly in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.


Unnecessary confusion

This plugin serves no purpose.

It increases confusion for people new to WordPress
Wastes time of people who are familiar with WordPress
and should not be included in core.

If you want to onboard people do that.
If you want to train them about how plugins work, then intentionally do that.

Including a useless plugin just wastes bandwidth and time, while increasing confusion.
