WP Meta and Date Remover provides a simple yet super useful functionality to our site where dependent on different categories, we'd love to show or not show the date. With the few clicks by the end user the job is done! Plus, Prasad is not only a fantastic web engineer, he also puts Customer - First and we experienced it first hand. Outstanding work!

Well done, you've managed to completely ruin what was once a plugin that actually worked to one the does absolutely nothing at all, except slow my site down a bit. Why you developers constantly feel the need to f@*k around with things I'll never know. Remember the old saying? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
