"Because the data gathering is too broad, automatic, without user knowledge, and without any way to turn it off."

It is worse than that because there are some options to turn data collection off in various places in Windows 10 - but these only turn a few things off and leave all the other data collection running. It is designed to give the user the false impression that data collection has been comprehensively disabled, when it has not - it is incredibly dishonest.
