    If you enable the option to track Address Bar Shares, this add-in will append a weird character string to each page as it is displayed. The plugin's settings configuration screen does not disclose this obnoxious behavior so you could end up spending quite a bit of time tracking down this bad behavior. If they disclosed it, that would be OK and you could decide whether to enable the feature.

    @stevef007: Address bar shares work only if we can append that string after the url. Sorry to hear that you got confused by it. Seeing that it can confuse the users, we are providing the disclosure in the upcoming release. Thanks for the feedback, we love to make AddThis better for you.

    Thank you. I finally found a disclosure on your website but this causes such a visible behavior change that a disclosure under the checkbox would be great. I understand the behavior is not a bug and that some may prefer to enable the feature.
