    This plugin enables a script and a cookie from "scorecardsearch.com" which is not cool and is what is causing the slow load times that a lot of people are complaining about here too...

  2. Please please please please please REPORT these to plugins at WordPress.org - we will investigate this. ASAP.

    Is this still the case? How can you verify it? Where does one look? (regarding the script)...

  4. I don't see it in the source code.

  5. I don't see the code anywhere either.

    Did you do a mass search through the plugins files to confirm this New-wp-guy?

    I'm going to guess this claim is false and this comment should be removed if moderators would be so kind. I don't think we should encourage people to label plugins having adware so easily, without some challenge. If a user does not provide screenshots and source code from the page they saw links or ads then such comments are un-fairly damaging a plugin plus authors reputation. It always comes from the new WordPress.org accounts and users who don't come back to a comment which makes it even more suspicious or just annoying.

    The allegation has been investigated and proven to be false. See Ipstenu's post above.

    esmi to the rescue as one expects ;)

  9. We do not remove ratings except in very rare cases. It is better for users to be able to make their own decisions based on what they can read.
