Plugin is violating WordPress plugin guidelines AGAIN! (2 posts)

    This plugin was removed once in the past for violating Worpress community plugin standards and it seems to be doing so AGAIN. I am seeing that it is serving out Javascript files (ex. adnxs.com & cloudfront files) that allow for 3rd parties to track your users and they are effectively selling our users data to them without notifying them or gaining consent. I'm confused as to how this plugin is still up on WordPress.org if it violates the community standards.

    For more info on this see:

    Developers of this plugin can you please explain what is going on here! You NEED to be honest about how your plugin functions.

  2. Could you please not post multiple topics about the same thing? Your review was deleted because it wasn't a review it was only those 2 links to topics over a year old.

    Can you point to the code that does the part that you are complaining about?

    If you can then (as reported in those other topics) report the specifics to plugins [at] wordpress.org.
