About Reviews on JED Almost all normal customers (approximately 99%) don't write review. A positive review comes after big development or some kind of hard work. But negative reviews are too easy: today problem - tomorrow negative review.
So I will thank you very much, if you write your review about this extension after long time successful usage.
