Add the option to remove sticky tag at expiration time

I hold current articles on the front page with the sticky tag and would like to remove it at a certain point in time.

        Hi there. I came here specifically to request this feature. If you haven't found another solution, here's a hack I applied:

        Edit the plugin file called post-expirator.php

        Search for the text "function postExpiratorExpire($id) {"

        On the next line add this: unstick_post($id);

        The file should then look like this:

        `function postExpiratorExpire($id) {

        unstick_post($id);

        $debug = postExpiratorDebug(); //check for/load debug
        `

        Note that the next time you update the plugin this line will be overwritten.

        even i would like to have it. The date of expiration of the promotion be shown as sticky tag. once the date is reached it shown show 'expired' instead of 'active'.

        I would really love to have this feature too!

        For me, an ideal scenario would be having a separate schedule for removing the sticky tag. Because I'm likely to want to remove the sticky tag first (on a particular date/time in the future), and then to actually expire the post (per the current methods - change category or status or delete it) at an even later date. I suppose that might be beyond the scope of this plugin, but if it were possible, that would be wonderful! :)
