I have a request or a suggestion. Not long ago I download two plugins from a plugin developer, Max Press. Unfortunately I do not recall which ones due to the fact they did not work as described and since deactivating them they have been deleted.
The issue that I have is the excessive emails that I am getting from having to register in order to get a plugin that does not work. Luckily they go to my junk mail box but the emails fills up my 'junk mail' box.
As a user of WordPress I would like to see tighter controls and more transparency put in place regarding the requirement to register to activate a plug-in such control I would suggest would include:
Statement of how email emails you will receive per week
Option to opt out from receiving advertising emails from the developer and included with each email that is sent a link that allows you to stop receiving future emails
A system to complain to WordPress if a plugin or theme developer is excessive in their emails
A system to notify WordPress of problematic plugins or themes
Development of a code of practice for theme and plug in developers as it relates to interacting with Word Press customers
Suspension or removal of a developer's work who abuse their interaction with Word Press customers
Integrating most of the needed plugins into future WordPress releases and only having a few plugins that meet specific needs of customers. Thereby protecting WordPress customers and helping to ensure only the best developers are allowed to interact with WordPress customers
Finally I would ask the staff of WordPress to research the laws regarding sending emails that are not allow the option to opt of receiving future emails and the sender does not provide an option to opt out of receiving them. I do wonder if this does not violate the law in some countries?
