I vote this thread the most rediculous thread so far for 2014.

Go ahead and root guys. If there was an issue it would be all over the net by now. Don't listen to one tinfoiled hat guys tomfoolery.

Which software should I be avoiding? If you suspect it, and can't prove it, why not just list it here so users like myself can avoid it and/or the developers can explain themselves.

Right now, am I to avoid all rooting software?
You can root via custom recoveries and root files, its considered safe.

I will post an update today on my findings

I don't get why people would use software to root their device.
It's much more fun to do it yourself.

Im sorry for your lack of imagination/empathy then.
But i dont always have the time (ie patience) to do it all myself.
And lets be honest nowadays everything has to be easy, people dont want to think for themselves anymore.
You can see that in the forums as lot's of easy/simple/dumb questions being asked. (without searching so the questions is not new).
I could go on, as its an irritating factor for me, dumb people...
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (N9005) - Stock rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7inch (T210) - RocketTab v3.1 rooted

HTC Desire HD running CyanogenMod 10.1 (Radio: 12.69.60.29_26.17.14.11_M) Sold

Here's what I don't understand. Why are you not telling us the suspect apps? You can report more findings when you get em. Until you state actual names or links to the apps you are being disregarded by many. If it's something on xda that's causing this and you are dickin the dog on telling us, you have lost all credibility...
