    Thanks for your opinion Jan. Please humor me for a moment… Feedback in Communication or Meaning of Feedback: When a receiver answers or responds to the sender through a message or information it is called feedback. In other words, feedback is the reaction to the sender’s message. Review: To review means to look back over something for evaluation or memory. … The review of a thing often evaluates the work in question based on its strong and weak points. When I see a support page offering feedback, that is what I am doing. I am giving you my opinion of what I see, and mine was aimed at not being able to use the Review mechanism to assist in deciding if a plugin was as good as it claimed. In a general sense a ‘5 star’ review is generally assumed to be a highly recommended product while ‘1 star’ is the opposite. I assume the purpose of the star rating system is to promote superior products but, in my opinion, if the ratings can be biased by the author simply posting more good reviews, then it reduces the value of the review process. As for orange indicators, I could not see any nor could I see anywhere that advised of such. I am not interested in entering into further discussion, I am done. I respect your right to a different opinion than mine. My point was simply that the star system (which implies a good to bad rating) does not work when one can increase the rating by spamming and therefore did not help me in choosing a plugin. Please don’t waste any more time responding as I do not wish to spend more time on this subject. Thank you for your interest.

    Many thanks for your quick response.

    Followup: the problem may have been triggered by my failure to get an API key and enter it into the options. However, if this is the case the validation routines should still not let me proceed.
