Why does disabling something that the centos website says is "highly
recommended" (multiple times) fix this issue?

For those that do not know, you can disable this plugin by removing it or by
going to the /etc/yum directory, and then go to the plugin directory below
there and editing the proper file and zeroing out the enable line
