    Looks like it could be for DeadBolt/LWC. Do you have either of those plugins?

    MoreMaterials uses metrics.griefcraft.com, so it created the folder.

    It's just a system for plugin devs to measure how many people are currently using their plugin. All plugins listed on http://metrics.griefcraft.com will create this folder.

    It is plugin metrics by the Maker of LWC. Many plugins includign LWC, Vault, and MoreMaterials all use it to send usage data to a server in order to see detailed stats on how many people are using their plugins.
    it doesn't hurt anything, but if you don't want to send your data, change opt-out to true.
