Please help with Word Count Plugin

I was taking a look at the download page for my Word Count Plugin for Windows Live Writer.

It’s gotten a few hundred downloads (thanks!), but the single review is actually spam. Unfortunately, I can’t remove it or even report the review from my account since it’s my own software.

Plea for help: Can a helpful reader out there please report this review as spam and request it to be removed? Also, could someone out there who does use Live Writer write a real review of the plug-in?

If you have further ideas to improve it, please let me know.

    I don’t use Live Writer so can’t help with the review, but I’ve reported the spam one :)

    Hello,
    Can you please share the code of the Word Count plugin? How did you manage to skip the HTML tags while counting the word in the post?

    many thanks in advance.

    I don’t want to post the code, but stripping the HTML was fairly easy with some regular expressions. It probably isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough.
