Has anyone contacted the authors of Dottimer / Recount yet?
The spam those addons produce needs reducing dramatically.
Dottimer's author removed syncing code weeks ago. If you're still seeing it spam then someone hasn't updated.
Recount's author seems to be MIA, so there's little hope unless someone else takes over the project.
I noticed QuestsFu is my worst offender now. It created 8 times as much spam as Threat-1.0 during Vashj, and it d/c's my friend whenever we both complete a quest at the same time on our alts (she had to disable QuestsFu).
Such addons will incsease memory substantially over time, especilly in a raid, you might want to keep it off when not using it.
"such addons" meaning AddonSpamFu, or meaning spammy addons? I didn't see AddonSpamFu using a lot of memory despite counting hundreds of thousands of events, but that's because the 200 or so counters it was keeping probably took up less than 1K of memory.
