    My problems I see with this are:

    How does it stop feed scrapers?

    How do javascript snippets count as link backs?

    How does it accept credit cards without https?

    And for those people reposting your stories...
    You must be admin to post script tags in a wordpress post. not editors, and not on wordpress.com.

    I would NEVER post someone elses javascript on my website. It seems like a security risk.

    That's my 2 cents. But you get an A for effort.

    Hmmm..... I would give it 2.5 stars but since the author has been gaming the plugins directory by updating his plugin's readme in order to stay on top, I would say that's slightly un-ethical and so anything that shakes my trust is going to weigh very heavily on my decision to use such a risky product.

    If it wasn't tied into a 3rd party service, my review would be completely different. At this point, I won't even install it.

    Hi and thanks for your feedback!
    I can provide answers to your questions.

    AtContent helps to stop feeding scrapers by deactivating copy-paste functions in browser. In addition to this, AtContent gives the opportunity to repost the whole article with author's name and link to his website.
    It's easier to repost the article than scrape it :)

    How JS snippets count as backlinks:

    Google can index JavaScrpt

    Google can read JS file by URL and index it like this is regular text.
    <script src="your_script_url_with_content_to_index.js"></script>

    <script language="javascript">
    var text = "This text also will be indexed";
    </script>

    Our JS contains links to the original source, which are indexed by Google. This means, our JS contains backlinks :)

    The third answer is, we never process payments without https. If the site where AtContent widget is placed doesn't work with https, it doesn't mean that our widget doesn't work with it.
    Actually, it works with https in every payment transaction.

    It's your decision to place someone's JS or not to place it.
    I can assure you that our JS doesn't contain any suspicious or malware code.

    I hope that my answers provided all information you needed to change your opinion on the plugin. If you still have questions, you're welcome to ask.
