I don't think a prompt to enable "anonymized" telemetry during the first setup would've been bad (defaulting to no).

And you don't have to be a target to simple not want your data being sent to a third-party. Our data is one of the most precious commodities of today, and yes - people really do care about your data. After all, Google makes millions off of yours.

All I'm saying, is that there is no reason people shouldn't have a choice. You'll never be 100% anonymous, but you can make the process hard and involved for someone to track you down and gather your information.

Power to the people, not the corporations.
