But there are plugins for your application, which are supposed to extend the functionality of calibre. Why you allow your plugins to hack in the other applications' data? ADE is not a part of Calibre, and hacking its store should not be possible from within it.

Sigh, I give up. I suggest you go educate yourself about how computers work. As a starting point, note that in a computer, any program can access any other programs data. That is how computers work. And plugins in calibre are just ordinary programs. If you dont like it I suggest you join the war on general purpose computing, serfs like us should only be allowed access to media consumption devices, not computers.

Anyway, I have wasted enough time on this thread. Over and out.

If you Force your way past a locked door, it is B & E
I'm pretty sure this doesn't apply to the Internet. If you leave data open to anyone in the world, it's not trespassing when someone decides to download it. I'm pretty sure also that a certain percentage leave them open deliberately. Wither it's to the global Internet at large or only their friends, the onus of securing data is on them.
