After installing a free plugin from wpmudev.org, I found that my server started nagging me to install a plugin which would give me more spam about their products.
Even after uninstalling their garbage, my server is now stuck with a banner which reads…
“Please install the latest version of our free Update Notifications plugin which helps you stay up-to-date with the most stable”
Not only do I find this insulting that an author would add something to my server without permission let alone spamming me but that even after getting rid of their plugin, the spam remains.
I’ve looked around a lot, have come across a lot of posts but none that explain how to remove this nonsense, only how to hide the spam banner.
Talk about unfair practices, it may as well have been a Trojan or virus since there is no obvious way of getting rid of it.
Perhaps wordpress.org should post a bulletin for others to know about their practices and decide for themselves if these bullies are playing fair or not to use their products. I never will.
These are not good practices and any author using them should be avoided. Now we have what used to be a nice which was coming along very well which now has code that we do not want installed.
