Okaay.

What happened to the rest if it - ..we will of course delete all of the data that we exfiltrated against the express wishes of the customer?

The thing is, this behaviour has been in Windows 10 throughout much of its development, so why are we supposed to think that it was a mere blunder? Such 'blunders' give them an obvious opportunity for a quick snapshot of whatever they're interested in and I think it would be foolish to believe that (a) it was accidental and (b) it won't happen again.

Where's the "Pull the other one" icon?
