Go for the throat
Good on her I say, I don't like the idea of ploititions resolving this but with petty reactions like Roy Fielding's this is just turning into a playground fight.
Sort the kids out, privacy should be on by default in my book why do the marketeers and advertisers belive that information is their right to have. While they silently enable the option but never tell the users it is there.
Less technical people would never know about it unless they were told as in IE10 (well done MS), everyone I have talked to has said they would turn the privacy on if they knew about it which none of them did before I talked to them.
