I think the problem is data being sent *at all* without the ability for
users to easily control it (without installing plugins to protect their
data), regardless of what that data is and how personally identifying it is.
With a preference pane in place (the anonymous data prechecked) it also
gives us scope to allow users the option to start sending some more
recording which admin pages you visit most often or how often your posted /
how many comments you received
Which would be great for some usability stats etc. I have no objection to
that data being sent, I have no ojection to the more general data being sent
-* just give me the choice*!
