    Hello,
    I'd like to know the difference between these two plugins?
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/shareaholic/
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/sexybookmarks/
    All 2 are called Shareaholic | share buttons & related posts and the presentation is the same, 1 compatible WP 3.6 and other compatible WP 3.5.2.
    thank you

    Hello,

    sorry,I had not seen this message.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/why-are-there-2-shareaholic-plugins-in-the-wordpress-directory

    Why are there 2 Shareaholic plugins in the WordPress directory.

    Here is the reason -

    The word "sexy" in the plugin URL slug (the other plugin - the one without the "*") gets blocked by certain corporate networks and ISP's in certain countries.

    We requested WordPress to switch the URL slug from "sexybookmarks" to "shareaholic" in order to fix this. We learnt that this is not possible... and the only thing for us to do is to create a new plugin repository under "shareaholic". So that is what we did...

    The two plugins are *exactly* the same otherwise. Line for line.

    So why WordPress.org does not remove the other, it would avoid duplication, unnecessary
