    There is a section of code on lines 356 to 361 that causes Akismet to send a lot of sensitive information about the environment on which WordPress is running to the Akismet servers. This information includes the server name, internal IP, domain, application pool, document root, etc.

    Quite surprising. Can someone from Akismet development team please kindily explain, why Akismet needs these sensitive data to just fight spam in comments?
