Invested interest? Nothing couldn't be further from the truth.
I couldn't comment without providing a rating. I could care less about this plugin. My comments aren't about this plugin they are clearing up the gross misconception that is being perpetuated by some of the comments made here that then made their way into blog posts bashing this plugin.
I came across the plugin because of numerous blog posts that were written about it based on Franz public statements and those blog posts all pointed to the fact that this plugin "phones home" as some sort of malicious evil thing.
There was a lot of misinformation being spread about this plugin based on how people were complaining about it that impacts the SaaS community as a whole. One of the things that this plugin was being bashed for was "phoning home", which is absurd because if a plugin interacts with a SaaS service it's going to "phone home".
So if you take that time to actually read what I wrote you'll see that i'm clearing up the misinformation about plugins "phoning home" because that in and of itself is not a negative and is not something a plugin should be bashed for nor pointed to as being malicious.
But what do I know. I've only developed one of the most successful commercial WordPress plugins in existence today. So i'm obviously full of crap.
