I took a look at that URL, and I see two problems there. First the data
that they suggest you hide is not particularly meaningful. Second, the
fact that you are hiding it will make you stand out from the crowd more
than not hiding it would.

One could argue that a better tactic might be to send the headers, but
populate them with valid data from a different platform. I'm still not
sure how much value that would have though.

Compare this for to get an idea of my context ...

| Does this mean that I tell some people about all my contacts?
| No, I try to avoid that.

| Firms such as Google, which set the default to "upload the whole

| Enigmail should not follow their example.
