I liked this plugin back then when it was just called Dark Mode. It used to be a small and effective extension and did what it was expected to do. I wouldn't care if someone took it over or the original authors decided to take a new direction, but along with all the bloat it's getting, it is also becoming increasingly obtrusive. It's now throwing popups and reminders all over the place, and if it wasn't enough they started to periodically spam your mailbox with the same meaningless messages. No other extension does this and I've tried a few. So here's my rating. I appreciate all your hard work guys but you are just being too much lately. There's plenty of competition for this plugin and they are right now what Dark Mode was a couple years ago. I switched to one of them and I'm not looking back. You might want to reconsider your marketing strategy or whatever you call it.

Another case of someone buying an abandoned plugin to take advantage of its large userbase and completely repurposing it for a quick and easy profit. Stay away!

WP Markdown is a dodgy plugin - they will use your data for to spam your your private dashboard. Avoid this plugin.
