Before you find out what this mod does, you need to have some knowledge of Microdata.

Original 4.1.10 code

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Just making a note (public). Am installing this now and will compare the results

Upon 3rd review, not installing.

You'd really need to 1) Change the link to your own site 2) Have re-write rules for this (more so if you're using nginx)
