Currently breaks menu creation

I never used this plugin before but my first install was a pain.
Currently it broke the menu creation process by returning wrong values to some filters like pre_insert_term. Regarding the number of hooks/filters used by this plugin it scares me a lot that some other hooks/filters return wrong values and breaks things…

User Activity

It works, but it is deficient in that it does not allow the Admin to see the dates of a user’s activity. This would be a useful feature to eliminate deadwood accounts that haven’t logged on in years since creation.

Watch out with this plugin

This plugin will force a dashboard widget to appear that shows random advertisements of the plugin developer. On the plugin author stated “According to plugin’s rule, we can showcase or advertise other items or Pro version feature listing as well.”. I’m happy with having the advertisements on a designated plugin page, same what Yoast does. However I strong disagree to the forced display on the dashboard section. As a result of that I’m going to delete this plugin and find an alternative from a more ethical developer.
