    I lose 3% off my score with the plugin activated and with 3.6.6 before ithemes there was no loss i front end performance...is there any need when realisticly no new features were added? The best thing about the plugin before was its simplicity and lightweight security.

    People will just start using other plugins if this gets bloated out.

    Also on a note of speed...PLEASE bring back the ability to manually clear log files!

    As good as iThemes has been, the longer it was around the more problems I began to have. For instance some of my plugins did not play well with it. I still think it is a great program for most people and would use it again if not for the need I have for the plugins it doesn't like. It also appears to slow down my site just a little. I use All In One WP Security & Firewall Plugin. It is not as popular and maybe not as good as iThemes, but it works well for me.
