If we are going to allow users to have access to the plugins menu, we should not be activating plugins like VVQ networkwide. Let blog owners do it locally.

We can't just shut it off, though. I will have to do some fancy searches to see whether there are blog posts that take advantage of VVQ, and make sure to reactivate the plugin on those blogs.

When run, it does the following:

- If found, VVQT is activated on that blog.
