WP Slimstat EX solves this with a nice GUI: http://screencast.com/t/Wq9ZJ9UP0xcc
How often do you change those values? I may decide to add a nice GUI, but I think it is more important to optimize the engine and make all the reports more flexible. WP-SlimStat-Ex didn't have all the filters WP SlimStat 2 has, and I guess that's the main difference. What that plugin was doing with contextual dropdowns, WP SlimStat implements with a more flexible filtering system :) It's just a matter of learning how to use them (see the brand new contextual help for that).
to have the "recent search terms" be clickable so that clicking them opens a new window with the search, i.e. if someone arrived on my site with an unusual search term, i.e. "test search" I can click, and the new window will open with this URL: http://www.google.com/search?&q=test+search - this way I can quickly see how I was ranking for that search term?
Ovidiu, you haven't paid enough attention to the brand new Right Now panel, which does exactly what you're asking for here above :) It also lists the SERP position and other Google-related variables, to give you as much information as possible on your visitors. This functionality will be soon extendend to the other screens, with a detailed view of some reports.
I asked you a while ago if you could automatically clean out the "recent known visitors" and the "top known visitors" so that spammers are removed? Currently on my own blog, I am the only users and those stats are full of spammers...
WP SlimStat relies on third-party solutions to identify spammers. There's an option to ignore spammers, but you may need to install Akismet or other similar plugins to be able to mark those visitors as spammers and ignore them.
Most importantly, is there a reason I see my own domain as the top traffic source?/blockquote>
Not sure, that depends on your server configuration. But you can always decide to ignore those pageviews, if you like ;)
