Description

After hearing someone in IRC support point out some plugins that have reported trojans/malicious code, it dawned on me that we don't have a way to report to the review team about issues with themes or plugins. We have ways for users to talk to the original developers though.

I think it'd be a good idea to at least consider a way to send feedback to the review teams for issues that come up after the initial vetting that goes on. It's near impossible to keep track of every single change coming in so this is would be a good 2nd option.

Although I feel for the review team if a more direct route of communication is created, I can see the benefit to this.

As it is, there's plugins@…, but not everyone knows about that address, and if you don't see it right away you're more likely to just ignore the reporting of it, and then someone else may walk into some issues as well.

tw2113 mentioned maybe a button to show a form of some sorts to report plugins. Might be a good idea, might not, maybe a predefined one, pick the category the issue resides in from a drop down, if non applicable an other option that lets you fill it in to allow for a more user friendly and intuitive (as well as less abuse prone) interface?
