Is Telemetry evil... even in Open Source?

@lunduke That is the problem with "Open Source" - it does not represent Libre/Free as in Freedom. And yes Telemetry is evil unless it is opt-in
@lunduke Probably shouldn't comment until I've actually seen the video, but as long as it's opt-in and not opt-out (or outright forced), then I don't really have a problem with it.
@lunduke not if it is opt in.
Even if it's opt-in, it's still partially questionable. For example, my biggest gripe with it is that it involves people who are in charge of managing & storing all the accumulated data of customers. Either that one person in charge, or multiple, or the subdivision of the company that works with that data, or the company itself might be tempted in selling it, or might leak it accidentally. You know, a good way to protect personal data of your users is to not store it in the first place!
