Today I found out that the SEO WordSpinner plugin is no longer available via its WordPress Directory page. I emailed WordPress plugin-master Mark Riley asking what was up, and he just emailed me back:
There were some complaints about some SEO plugins.
Your plugin was among those checked and given it’s purpose is not suitable for the directory now.
If you’re a fan of the SEO WordSpinner plugin, email WordPress now to show your support!
The guidelines for the directory state that plugins “must not do anything illegal, or be morally offensive.”
The SEO WordSpinner plugin does nothing illegal or immoral. The only “morality” issue may be that the plugin is at odds with Google policies…but why is WordPress equating “morality” with Google policy?
Note: You can still download the plugin from the SEO WordSpinner plugin page.
