 > You had me for a second, I use a plugin called Stealh Update and
 immediatly logged in to see if it was updated but yours is called Stealth

 No, sorry, I meant the plugin did a stealth update; new plugin owner, new
 plugin functions all delivered under old plugin update.

 > I like your idea except for the fact that when the update shows up in
 the appropriate section and you are just 1 click away to update you have
 no clue what is about to happen.

 When a plugin is due for an update you have two options "update now" and
 "view version x.x.x details". I always check the details, which shows the
 changelog, and I'm suggesting contains a graph that would highlight any
 changes in a plugins rating.

 > On another similar note, when many 1 star comments suddenly show up for
 a specific plugin, why it does not pop a red flag for an inspection by
 external staff who can then maybe take appropriate actions with the plugin
 author if fault is found?

 Because this could be competitors leaving a bad review. Plugins could be
 easily sabotaged. But ultimately this is what I am suggesting we as users
 have, which will help all of us, to dig a bit deeper.
