I guess it would be good idea, although I think linking to something 
broader like this kind of condensed documentation is enough really:
https://www.fsf.org/campaigns/surveillance although this specific one is 
from 2013...

I'm in favor of inviting the users to reflect and document themselves, 
i'm hesitant about endorsing stuff that is out of our scope. Let me 
think about it :)

That is thunderbird, and it happens regardless what distrib you run it 
on. But yeah, i was headbanging on the first row singing along in the 
refrain when RMS kicked the classic "ubuntu-hate" smash hit at the 
university of stockholm. Gotta have some self-distance to keep the mood 
afloat in this world. ;)

You could turn this the other way around, and think of a second computer 
as a way to reduce waste: get one from the second-hand store, save it on 
a waste-yard, repair your cousins broken one or simply do not throw that 
"old" machine away...

Yours optimistically,
