Comment (by conradish):

 Was about to start a new ticket on this. But spotted this.

 Ok, so I just had a plugin "Stealth upgrade" an entirely new unwanted
 bloatware multifunction plugin over the original very popular lightweight
 single use plugin I had installed years ago. There wasn't really any clue
 in the "view version x.x.x details" or on the plugin page itself, though
 reading the latest 1 star reviews made it clear what had happened and that
 it was now very unpopular. The plugin team suggested I post here with an
 idea I had to help with this.

 How about including a simple line graph on the plugin details page (and/or
 even the "view version x.x.x details" from installed plugins page) showing
 average review score over time? If say a seven day average was used, this
 would help show a sudden drop or rise in plugin experience for the user
 and immediately flag up that something might not be quite right.

 Y axis would be star rating 1 to 5. X axis might be the last 12 months, or
 whatever works.
