I personally don't have a problem with software gathering telemetry information, provided the collection is fully disclosed up front, and it uses an opt-in permissions model.

@sbanwart If the kinds of data that they were collecting wasn't so inhumane, I dont think they would have any problems with disclosing what they collect. But they know they are conniving little criminals and what they are doing is wrong hence the covert methods of excessive surveillance.
