  1. Installed the plugin and it worked like a charm. Followed the link to buy the pro version and thought that 14 bucks is a very fair price. Then I noticed the small "Billed yearly until cancelled" print. WTF? I'm not going to pay again every year for the same damn software! I'll just stick with the free version until you offer a fair "pro" pricing.
