I strongly SUPPORT the “do not track” list. Just like “do not call”, for privacy reason “do not track” is very important. It gives too much power to companies collecting such information over a person’s behavior. Ultimately such companies (if they do not already know) would know how much a person earns, his family members’ names, income, gender, bank balance, debts, assets, friends, hobbies, jobs and what not. That is too scary.
I would also support “do NOT photograph” to get house/businesses off Google’s street view project.
