    If this review is to be believed:

    The plugin sends the blog admin's personal info anonymously over to the plugin author. I thought that violates the wp guidelines? What do you guys think?

    Several users were having issues with getting the hidden path setup. These were only temporarily put in so we could have an understanding of the issues that user's are having. They were just taken out in 1.7.

    Nothing was violated. WordPress sends anyomous stats to the wordpress.org with your version information, plugin information, etc. These were never leaked, even though there was nothing vital that was collected. They just collected a permalink structure, WordPress version and the login base that was used. We never collected the admin's personal information.

    But again, these are removed now. Update to 1.7.
