Thank you VERY MUCH for proposing the "Do Not Track" mechanism! I support this 100%. The situation has increasingly felt out of control in favor of those disrespecting other human beings' right to privacy by pursuing what have appeared to be greed-driven activities. If you believe that omitting information is the equivalent of lying, tracking people without letting them know you're doing it is deceitful. Not giving them the option to opt out limits their travels on the web. On a related note, I'd also request that you consider creating a mechanism that would prohibit someone from uploading pictures or video to the internet without the permission of the person in the video or picture. Thank you for your help.
