My guess would be that people voluntarily participate because they want the free advance copy of the book. Have you ever read an ARC?

And on a larger topic, do you use Facebook, GoodReads, Amazon, Gmail or a cell phone? Do you use Ghostery, NoScript or (bettery yet) TOR? I do use the first batch and I don't use the second batch, because in the end, allowing these companies to know a little bit about me makes life easier.

So long as the company is upfront about what they're doing (and candy.js seems to be), then I don't have a problem.

You posted links to a different article about the ALA and Adobe spying on people's libraries. That's a whole different thing. A much bigger issue than this candy.js flap.
