Is it a feature request if I would like to see the "Compress JPEG & PNG images" plugin NOT come back again and again?
At least a half dozen times I have deleted it in the last year and talked to support 2 or 3 times, no one has a solution or timeline for a solution. Updated PHP from 7.0 to 7.2 tonight and sure enough, right after the update it was back again.

AGREED! I use a different plugin for compressing images, please stop automatically adding yours back in every time i delete it.
I concur. The automated install of these plugins is terribly distracting and upsets our management processes for our clients. For security reasons we restrict inactive plugins from lingering on a site too long and these plugins randomly pop-up and it requires one of our tech's to purge it. It's silly too, cause we know it will just come back. Very frustrating.

I have to delete them CONSTANTLY still, on all sites, for months now.
Compress jpeg/png image and Classic editor. Forced plugins, Constantly have to delete. I gave up on this ever being fixed a while ago, but it's so annoying.
