Well, all the ones that they /tell/ you about. ;-)

I have not tried it yet, I admit.

Me, personally, no. I don't disable such things. I don't care. Right
now, I'm typing on a Mac running Yosemite and it can tell Apple
whatever it likes, really. I'm registered with an Apple ID in my real
name with my real address and contact details. I always use my real
name online; I won't use services that /don't/ let me use my real
name.

Also note my 1980s-USENET-compliant .sig at the bottom: 4 lines, all
real-world contact info.

Does that look like someone privacy-obsessed to you? :-)

Agreed, I guess -- I think that is more private. But then I not only
have an Amazon account in my real name, I have a seller account too,
and this:

(No, I don't get royalties. But please buy my books anyway as it makes
the Reg happy, and they pay me, and that makes me and my landlord and
my bank manager happy.)
