Is it absolutely necessary for WPMU Dev to force me to have to have their notifications all over my Admin panel?
I feel that since I have paid for their products, I should be permitted to decide which notifications I receive. If I insall ANY of their plugins, I am faced with a message at the top of EVERY Admin pages that I basically MUST install their updates plugin.
Then if I do actually install the updates plugin, I seem to be bombarded with update messages, that I am not interested in. Even about plugins, that I have not installed. If I want to know what new plugins WPMU Dev have created, I will log into the site and have look for myself.
Yes, I do agree that WPMU Dev do infact produce some excellent plugins, and I am more than happy to pay for them, but let me decide what shows up in my admin panel.
Also, could WPMU Dev confirm that if the updates plugin is installed, and that plugin is in contact with WPMU Dev systems, what information is being passed to WPMU Dev about my wordpress installation, its plugins, or its content? If WPMU Dev is obtaining information about the site and its administational set up, what permissions have been obtained to do this. Or is permission granted by installing the plugin. If it is granted by installing the plugin why can WPMU Dev provide the option of switching off the "Install Updates Plugin" message if we choose that we do not wish to.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help on these matters.
