Poor Configuration and Support
By , for WP 3.6

Installation of this plugin (a plugin I have used in the past, happily) now leads to the inclusion of something called "Snapsets" which basically invades every area of your site. Any time a visitor highlights something, whether text, an image, a form, anything, the Snapsets interface button adds itself to the appearance of your site: blue scissors.

The ShareThis website offers a means for disabling this feature—but it is useless when using this plugin, since this plugin has no place in its settings to use their suggested method for disabling Snapsets. The settings offer no easy method, such as a checkbox, either.

The ShareThis website is one of the most useless websites I've ever visited. Trying to navigate it and accomplish anything is nearly impossible. For one, you are constantly having to re-log in; the site doesn't seem to recognize the fact that you have just logged in, if you happen to visit another page on the site. For another, their menu system for navigation, such as it is, is rather cryptic. Just try to find your way around their site looking to solutions to problems; I dare you. Just try to configure your plugin from that end: I dare you.

Technically, the plugin itself "works", if you don't mind sacrificing the appearance of your blog to Snapsets.

spam!
By , for WP 3.6

this plugin takes your email form your WordPress installation and then emails you spam without you having to opt in.. its also poorly written without many options.

Nice and simple
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have been using the puglin in a few websites already and I'm very satisfied.

Maybe for very junior "developers", the widget codes are not very very intuitive, but i cannot think an easier way, i mean, it is easy enough.
I would suggest a way to choose the size of the sharing buttons, maybe for the future.

Thanks a lot for the plugin!

very disappointed
By , for WP 3.5.2

loved this till it stopped working - wasted a whole day messing about with plugins to find out which ones were conflicting with it.. looked up support forum and there seems to be a lot of *days* between support responses and a lot of repetition of fix suggestions - none of which seem to work.
Pity, cos it was well ahead of the competition while it worked.

Bloated

Plugin is very bloated with scripts and can't be loaded conditionally.

The support at share this is awesome. I was unable to place button on top, just below the Tittle. They very quickly replied me with a code. In fact, I am lazy as I have not implemented it still.

Annoying
By , for WP 3.5.1

I don't like that it adds itself everywhere and you can't use it conditionally on, for example, different post types. Requests to be able to disable on particular pages or post-types are answered with, "uninstall the plugin, then manually add the scripts and markup everywhere you want it." How useful is that? All or nothing is useless.
