Status Plugin alt text request

A while ago, I asked that the Status Plugin generate alt text for its thumbnails to comply with ADA and disabled accessiblity laws. Nothing was done. The number of lawsuits against website owners is increasing for accessibility. I think given the automatic nature of the Status plugin, and the fact that the thumbnails are not locally hosted, alt text which is global in nature, e.g., "thumbnail generated from link, click for source" would at least provide a colorable defense. Please address this with urgency!
