    After installing this widget I noticed its generating SPAM links to the following sites which, from what I can tell, are clients of the developer who created this plugin.

    http://www.actualitemadagascar.com
    http://www.yennenga.com

    Here is the output HTML. You can easily modify the code to fix it if your familiar with PHP.

    <div style="height: 0px; width: 0px;overflow: hidden; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px;">
    La Princesse Yennenga : Princesse, Amazone, Reine mère du royaume Mossi L'actualité à Madagascar : toute l'actualité nationale et internationale Malgache Astuces, conseils et outils pour webmasters
    </div>

    This is not spam. These links are inserted in exchange the plugin use. There are linking to website own by the Dezmonde : the mjor contributor of the plugin.
    These are hidden to make the plugin display clean on user websites.

    You should inform your users about this. I don't want to build a website for my clients with hidden links.

    Btw, this is only going to generate a bad vibe and reputation for Dezmonde. Anybody that looks into the HTML will realize what the purpose of the link is.
