Disclaimer: Headshot implements Gravity's Updater, which is used for updating the plugin automatically. If you don't want to have the plugin updated automatically, set 'auto-update' to false in the configuration file. Additionally, Headshot uses MCStats to collect anonymous statistics about the kinds of servers running the plugin. All of these statistics can be found here. This can be disabled by setting 'opt-out' to true in the 'plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml' file.
