We provide network23 users with a selection of wordpress plugins. These have been chosen for different reasons. Sometimes, the plugin developers start doing things we don’t like and we have to make a tough choice whether to remove the plugin (which could break some old sites that were relying on it), or deal with it.
Recently some of our plugins have started asking users (i.e. bloggers) to “opt-in”, “upgrade”, or “sign-up” for some extra features. We strongly urge you not to do this. It creates a risk that your privacy could be breached in various ways, and could compromise the way this network runs.
