Popup Anywhere
Before downloading the plugin, I read many reviews where people couldn't figure out how to use it. Well, after downloading it, I was one of them. Went to plugin, and couldn't find any options there. After probably no less than hour of trying to make it work, I uninstalled it and browsed the developers site to find answers. And I found it. Turns out, I downloaded the plugin for 1.5 version even though I was in 1.6/1.7 description. And it let me do that without registering. Second time, I had to register and succeeded to download version for 1.7. To developer: why would you need such a confusing website?! Make it simple. Because if I got lost there (kinda same items in diferent website tree branches or something), I believe anybody else can.
The plugin itself (when you get it installed) is nearly perfect. It's simple, nice looking, and easy configurable. I just don't understand where comes a word "Articles" as a caption, which stays there no matter what I do...

Udja Comments
I have tried many other comment extensions but since jComments don't support Joomla 1.6/1.7 I have chosen this one as it really worth it.
I really like the front end of it - it's clean and simple. However, needs language selection or just custom field names - that would save time editing the language files. the "force email entry" isn't working - regardless what I selected, it was still demanding to enter email address on the front end. When trying to delete one or all comments at the back end, it didn't delete them even if I was noted that the comment/s was deleted successfully. The last thing I don't understand is when you submit (or attempting to) a comment for about half of second it takes you to the top of the article where notifications are shown and then straight back to comment box (why notifications are not shown somewhere around the comment box?).
Despite that, it is a really good extension and I'm really happy I found it. It's exactly what I was looking for and if you are looking clean lightweight article commenting plugin - it's really great. And despite all the bugs that I experienced I still use it, only gonna wait for the update.

SocButtons
Great plugin, but like somebody already said before, Google+ button doesn't appear straight away. Most of the time after loading the page you can see all other buttons except G+. There's empty gap instead. After refreshing the page - everything's ok agan.
Thanks for great plugin though!
