I was about to setup autopost from my blog to Plurk just now. Then I found this plugin and I thought I finally got the right solution. I installed it, activated it right away and was ready to get the API to make it work. To get the API I had to signup to LinksAlpha which is not a deal breaker by itself. However upon clicking the “Add plurk account” I got the notification to upgrade to pro account to get it done! What the hell is this? Nowhere in the plugin description mentioned about there’s a service you’d have to pay for, and that was nowhere to be found on the LinksAlpha website either! Yes, there’s no such mention of “Pro/Premium account” in the frontpage!
This is kinda deceiving to me, and on the other hand the information feels like misleading. I wouldn’t mind if it was stated right in the plugin page or in LinksAlpha’s index page but since it was done in a way like they’re trying to hide the truth (that would only be revealed once you registered) then I can’t continue to use this because who knows there might be more strings attached once I paid for it? I immediately uninstalled the plugin and I would NEVER recommend it to anybody, no matter how awesome it is to other people. Yeah it might work great but that is no point if it makes me feel like a victim here. Sorry but I will write about this in my blog too and I don’t care if people agree with me or not.
