At least it's disturbing to me... I've noticed some plugins, both free and premium, charging a monthly subscription fee to activate all the plugin's features. If this trend continues, server owners may end up paying multiple monthly subscriptions to continue running. My understanding is that plugins were never intended to be a major source of income to the plugin authors. They were supposed to allow authors to share their creations and support the Spigot community by allowing people to provide improved and customized servers. Premium plugins were allowed as a way to reward authors for their hard work in creating more complicated plugins. Now you download/purchase a plugin, and after you get it, you discover there are additional features which were not mentioned on the overview page that are available only after paying a monthly fee, which also isn't mentioned on the overview page. In some cases, the fee unlocks an "improved" feature, which is another way of saying you're getting a crippled feature unless you pay by the month. I don't know how other people feel about this, nor what should be done, if anything. But this is supposed to be a hobbyist site (right?), not one providing plugins that we have to pay for every month.
