Ok, I like the basic functionality of this plugin, but I HATE the spamming of the admin interface. The dev asks for "donations" for the pro version that doesn't have the ads. So basically, if I want the ad removed from the footer, sidebar, dashboard and everywhere else, then I would have to give a "donation" of $30 and a monthly charge for support and updates. That's a lot of money for any plugin. This dev is spamming and ripping people off.
Now, since I need the basic function of the plugin and I don't feel like getting ripped off, I have no other choice but to edit the plugin to remove the spam.
WordPress should remove the plugin and warn against it until the dev can learn to be professional. If all the other devs start spamming and holding our admin interface hostage for a ridiculous "donation" amount, then our admin interfaces would be impossible to work in. WordPress, nip this in the bud before it gets out of control.
