Should be a way to report plugins

    We review all plugins before they're accepted, but we do not review every release of every plugin at this time.

    Here is another great example of a plugin that actually does nothing. It's 100% a sales lead to their purchased version and nothing else: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/file-manager-advanced/reviews

    As a plugin develop myself, I can tell you first-hand; when I initially released my plugins, they went through review to be approved. After that release, there was no review process. If I wanted to, I could have abused this like crazy - just like the plugin I mention in this reply is doing today.

    This really bugs me that some developers can just abuse this system. We need plugin reviews for all plugin updates as well as initial releases.

    It's unmaintainable at scale (and if you want some fun, go see how theme devs complain about how long a review takes for EVERY release).

    But, Dennis, YOU KNOW what the right thing is to do here!

    Email us - Plugins@wordpress.org

    You said in your review "I'll report this right now" and you didn't. I'll take this as your report and address it right now.
