    This use to be a simple an efficient little plugin that worked just great. I used it for years with no problems.

    Now it’s just a data harvesting tool of everything you have on your site.

    You could have just let this plugin alone the way it was and create a “Pro-Crap” version where you can make some money selling the ridiculous unnecessary features you now offer, while leaving the free version untouched without any data harvesting and no changes.

    Please don’t even try to defend the fact that you will be not collecting data from sites here.

    You are going to sound like the expensive hotel bills with the fine print below “For your convenience an 18% hospitality charge has been added to your total bill” For my convenience you are charging me 18% more? Gee thanks!

    In this case you: “For your convenience we will be collecting all the data on your site to make this plugin work better”.

    You said that there is an option out. The problem is that when you update the plugin to the new version you are already “opted in”. You have to manually opt out, by then you probably have already collected the information you needed. Looking at your source code sounds like you can reverse it anytime even after opting out.

    Thank goodness I found a function.php script that will do exactly what this plugin used to do, “Disable all comments” without the bloated version you have implemented.

    I have deleted your plugin from all my sites.

    Hi @lechon ,

    First of all, Thanks for sharing your feedback.
    I understand your disappointment.

    The problem is that when you update the plugin to the new version you are already “opted in”. You have to manually opt out, by then you probably have already collected the information you needed. Looking at your source code sounds like you can reverse it anytime even after opting out.

    No actually. We don’t collect any data like that. Only if you click “Sure I’d like to help” will collect non-sensitive diagnostic data. And if you cancel once, We will not collect any data also this notice will not be visible anytime in your website: https://d.pr/i/GxDKBZ

    We appreciate any feedback to improve further.
    Have a nice day!
