Feedburner Users Have 8 Days To Hide From Google
Really, there isn’t a whole lot to worry about. There aren’t going to be a bunch of Google engineers sitting around going, “Ooh, look, Steve Rubel has that number of feed subscribers using Bloglines. Tee hee”. But it’s really cool of Feedburner to give paranoid users the option of getting out if they really wanted to. It’s the sort of thing that should be adopted in principle, if not in law, for future acquisitions. Imagine if a service you used was acquired by a company know for selling user data to spammers. Wouldn’t you want a week to get the hell out?
