All license owners, or those affiliated with them can upload resources (unless they have been specifically restricted from doing so).

Don't assume the add-on/code works just because it is in the Resource Manager.

The onus is on the person downloading the resource to check.

If you don't know enough to look over the code itself, then I would rely on the resource discussion thread and reviews in order to make an informed decision.

I would not touch an add-on that was not distributed by the author himself, especially paid ones, as you have no idea what was added to it.

Popularity is not everything. If it is well written then the add-on is good regardless of whether the add-on is popular or not. It could have one download and no reviews and still be very good/safe.
Of course, the more people use it the more likely it is bug free (or at least the bugs are documented).
I would recommend installing new add-ons on a test forum first rather than putting it on your live forum right away.

Just remember that someone has to download an addon first ;)

If everyone was very sceptical, then no addons would have users, as everyone wouldn't trust it because it hasn't been used by someone else...
