This addition would be a massive aide in protecting everyone's privacy, however if the "Do Not Track" list is indeed implimented, then certain precautions would have to be taken in order to prevent it's abuse. One important question I have, and im sure many other concernced Americans have is: Would security departments (think police, DEA, etc) be able to monitor the activities of people who are potentially commiting crimes even if these people are under the veil of the "Do Not Track" feature This tool certainly needs to have the functionality to track (and ideally, report) people who are participating in illegal, and/or dangerous activities! If the "Do Not Track" tool can be implemented with the aforementioned feature, then I think it would be a wonderful addition to our lives!
