  1. I’ve seen problems with a lot of those but there are some surprising ones on there too. A lot of people use w3-total-cache but I personally don’t like it because it usually finds a way to make things worse. broken-link-checker will crash a server, just don’t ever use it. All of those backup plugins listed hog a lot of server resources so I can see why they would be blacklisted but what backup plugin doesn’t use a lot of server resources on a heavy site? I prefer doing backups outside of wordpress but you need shell access for that.
