Follow buttons disappear after a few days
By , for WP 4.5.2

This is the fourth and last time I am going through the effort of creating the social media buttons. The first time I thought that I had somehow done something wrong and accidentally deleted by follow and social media links... all 6 of them... at the same time (twitter, facebook, google+, youtube, email and rss). When this happened the second time I thought that is was because I had not created an AddThis account, which I proceeded to do. The third time I thought that it might have happened because... well I just assumed that something had gone wrong.

AddThis cookies cause SLOW page loads
By , for WP 3.8.1

Tried a test on webpagetest.org because I got complaints that new WordPress site was running VERY slow. Seeing b.scorecardresearch.com and ds.reson8.com were causing load times to be 3x slower.

AddThis appears to know about these "cookies" (malware) and yet they still haven’t done anything to remove it: http://support.addthis.com/customer/portal/questions/3037805-scorecard-research

I should note that, once I removed the AddThis plugin, the above "cookies" disappeared and my page load time was MUCH faster.

Cannot rate higher than one star. Disappointed.
