Support » Plugin: WordPress Ad Widget » Plugin calls home with my personal information upon installation

  • When I installed this plugin, I was surprised when it sent me an email containing an ad for your other plugin. That’s a little tacky, if you ask me.

    But then I dug into your code, and this plugin actually emailed *you*, the plugin author, a copy of my blog’s name, its URL, the admin’s email, and the current version of WordPress.

    That’s not just tacky, that’s a serious privacy issue and I don’t appreciate it. Not only is it wrong, its against the rules of the WP plugin directory to call home like that for no reason.

    Please update your plugin to remove this calling home code. If its important to you that you know my email address, you can ask me for it.
