    When I install this plugin, I see an annoying message ask me to register.
    To not expand my time editing such source code I do registration and for my surprise a anti-spam plugin were affiliate with Spam networks.
    Yes, I use "Marcelo Spam Math" as name in registration form...

    Some plugins want you to register so they can market to you.

    It isn't spam - it's just their conditions for using their software:
    You use their software; they get to send you marketing emails.

    Personally, I don't like having my arm twisted like that, so I uninstall the plugin.

    There's an unsubscribe link at the bottom.

    Hopefully it's like any marketing email, and you can just unsubscribe from it.

    "None of your subscriptions have been changed. If you wish to unsubscribe or subscribe to a list, hit the back button on your browser, and then check or uncheck the appropriate boxes
    Return to James Pegram dot com"

    What means, I can't unsubscribe, just die receiving spam from such site...

    I just clicked on that link you provided.

    All you have to do is change the selection.

    Anyhow, I'll do it for you, and hopefully that is the end of that :)

    You have to do more than click on it. You then change the selection, and hit enter.

    Anyhow - you should hear nothing more from them.

    It's just plugin marketing.
