Hello Dolly

This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong.

For now. 22 to 22 on 1 to 5 star ratings.
Hey, this is probably the one plugin that has worked flawlessly for every version of wordpress. That right there makes it worthy of 5 stars, regardless if the first thing I do on a fresh install is delete it.

why so many 1 star ratings???? This is harmless and fun

Lighten up people...

This plugin is useful as a demonstration of how plugins work. It's also fun, and gives your installation of WP a little whimsy. So, lighten up and deactivate/delete it if it bothers you. Makes me and some of my clients smile.

Haters Gonna Hate

This review is to offset all the 1's - no way does this plugin deserve an average of only three stars. It's the most useful plugin around. Why? Because it's pre-installed and does nothing critical. So delete it... Wait - you can't delete (or re-install) it with one click? Because your server (if you run your own) or your webhost's server (if you don't) is not set up correctly. Hello Dolly is the proverbial canary in the coal mine. I love canaries - and debugging installs. Thanks, Matt.

Wonderful

Just blogged about it and some of the alternatives. I was even inspired to make my own based on WordPress tips. Thanks for putting this plugin together, Matt. :)
