I'm a long time user of this great plugin. I have tested almost all popular related posts plugin and finally I picked this one and its working great to date.
But since a few days I have noticed that the plugin is losing its USP. It was known to be the smallest and minimal plugin. It used to do what it supposed to do but now you guys are inserting too much unnecessary stuff in the plugin.
First the addition of themes, then statistics and then promoted content, etc.
And now the thing which forced me to create this topic is the addition of a new table in wordpress database. I just noticed that the latest version of this plugin added a new table "wp_wp_rp_tags" in wordpress database.
I have ditched a few related posts plugin in past because they used to insert their own table in WP database and now the same thing is being done by this plugin.
Please guys don't make this plugin bloated. Keep it simple.
