I know I posted about this a while ago, but I still dislike it. Not many of  
the people that download and use it successfully ever come back to to click  
the works button. Yet people are more likely to return to click broken if  
it doesn't work for them.

95% of the people that say its broken when they actually post for help,  
have mis-configured things, or even not set up WP correctly. Of the  
thousands that have downloaded the plugin just 2 people have clicked  
anything, and one of them was me.

So these 'stats' are never going to be an accurate representation.

Can it be changed so that if you say it is broken you not only have to give  
a reason, but that reason is sent to the plugin developer so that they can  
get an idea of why people are saying it is broken!
