Every week I’m getting at least 5 emails from bloggers asking me - “Can I get rid of the (i) report button?”. So I want to clear it once and for all – Sorry, you can’t! We spent enormous amount of time developing it for the bloggers community with the incentive of making bloggers’ life easier by providing them the #1 FREE & self-hosted Rating-Widget. Unfortunately, the maintenance and the support of this project costs money and someone need to pay the bills. The report button is one way to gain traffic back to the site to engage users see some ads.
If that bothers you, you can always upgrade to the Pro version and get rid of the report button and get additional awesome features.
