Re: Privacy ?
If you need privacy then use Jeff’s plugin. It has great potential, but it’s not ready for 1.2 core.
With all due respect, the developers seem more interested in “new features” and cool coding challenges than straightforward usability and making sure the core is rock solid.
Adding “with all due respect” at the beginning of a sentence doesn’t stop you sounding like a troll. A considerable amount of time has been spent improving the core code and the usability of the default theme. If you’re following the trunk and the dev process (which I assume you aren’t based on your own assumptions) you’d already know this.
