Well, there is a heated debate on this, and rightly so. When I noticed this feature in Quantal my first reaction was: have they gone crazy? I know we, the manual project, should not give an opinion, but this really makes me angry. I do hope they will decide to make this feature an opt-in, not an opt-out.

So, perhaps we should wait until they have made a final decision?
