A brave attempt to try to stem Automattic invasion of privacy

AliceWonderfull herself makes the best case for what it is she is trying to stop with this plugin. Kudos to her for creating a plugin to stop some of the invasion of privacy and harvesting of user data.

As AliceWonderfull points out herself, it’s not nearly enough:

I know exactly what your game is. Your company saw Google get rich by making all of us the product they sold to advertisers. And now you are trying the same thing – release stuff like jetpack hoping it gets data pushed through your cloud where you can track us and our interests, and with our e-mail address, even track us on blogs that don’t use jetpack because you can use the hash of our e-mail address to look at gravatar requests.

A sad day when we can’t trust our open source CMS built on the blood and tears of volunteers.
