Latest Version installs SPAM Menu "BWL"
By , for WP 4.0.1

Following an update to the most recent version, the plugin now installs the SPAM menu known as "Best Web Layout" listed in Admin Menu as BWL.

Way to tarnish an otherwise good plugin with unwanted bloated junk.

Wrong way to do it
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin does not produce a true shortcode. It introduces non-standard, ambiguous markup -- single open/close brackets around a single letter. This causes problems for excerpts and is indistinguishable from a commonly used way to indicate alterations in a quotation.

Additionally, the plugin looks for each letter of the Latin alphabet and applies its own markup and CSS but without providing unique classes for each letter. This is useless for non-Latin alphabets, it's useless if you want to create custom styles for each letter, and it's useless in every other respect as well.
