I noticed this little nugget in the Google Analytics FAQ :
Due to user privacy concerns, Google Analytics doesn’t report on personally identifiable information, including a visitor’s IP address.
Is this the same Google that will take a picture of you in your own home from 20 feet away, post it online, and tell you if you don’t want to be photographed in a certain manner you shouldn’t be doing it visibly in “public” ? This is in spite of the fact that I already have access to the IP addresses that visit the site.
Of course the real kicker is that they say they don’t report on such information, it doesn’t say they don’t capture it and use it for their own nefarious ends.
