Can Commercial System Plugin can still be removed from JIRA?

I'm trying to install a trial version of nFeed plugin to do some testing. However I found this note of JIRA regarding System Plugin

System Plugins

These plugins are integral parts of your JIRA system. They cannot be uninstalled. Disabling or removing them will have serious effects, and may render JIRA inoperable. Do not make changes here unless instructed by Atlassian Support.

So considering this note. If I found nFeed not adequate, I can't disable/remove it since it's a system plugin?

It is not a system plugin. It is a user installed plugin and you can uninstall it anytime if you want. Same case with any third party plugins.

Thanks of the quick reply

Just want to be sure because I found in the installation note of nFeed that it will be under the System Plugins Section

Oh, yuck, that's bad - it should not class itself as a "system" plugin. Naughty developer.

Anyway, yes, Jobin's answer is still correct - removing it should not be a problem.
