Enabling the GoingUp! plugin adds a hidden link without permission, that is positioned beyond the screen “position: absolute; top: -8000px“.. incredibly so one of them is a keyword link to “forex trading”.
<div style="position: absolute; top: -8000px;" ><a href="http://www.goingup.com" title="Visitor Tracking">Visitor Tracking</a><a href="http://www.forex.sc" title="forex trading">forex trading</a></div></div>
I believe this is a violation of terms. Plugin reported.
The plugin must not embed external links on the public site (like a “powered by” link) without explicitly asking the user’s permission. Any such options in the plugin must default to NOT show the link.
