    I usually enjoy your podcast and find the reviews very handy, but I have a rant about the Facebook Feed review by Marcus. Taking away a point from a plugin review just because it’s a ‘Facebook’ integration is ridiculous. The plugin sounded like it did everything it was supposed to and even imported events. That would be very valuable to many people such as entertainers, artists, clubs, etc. Adding a snarky comment about taking a point off was unprofessional. If you meant it to be funny, it didn’t come off that way.
