in reply to Padre and usage statistics

Emphasis is mine ...

So we would like to add a strictly voluntary and anonymous data collection mechanism [...] If they approve we go ahead. ( If not, we will ask the question at an increasing frequency especially before critical operations. [...] )

Why would you want to annoy your users "especially before critical operations"?

    It was a joke as the rest of the sentence tried to make it clear.

    I am sorry if that was not.

    If a user said he does not want to give data Padre would just work without collecting any statistical information.

      Sorry then, subtlety was not with me at the time.

      It could be that the phrase "ask the question at an increasing frequency" just what I needed to read further to get my knickers in a bunch.
