[kde-community] user stats for Neon

What's the problem with pinging the Neon servers? Any system already does
way more than that when checking for updates, not to mention when you
connect to a website, or even IRC.

How can this ping be violating any privacy if we don't even need to store
the IP, just a unique ID? We can even generate the ID ourselves so it can't
be matched with other sources. I don't see how this can have any impact to
privacy nor any other use than counting people using Neon.

I don't understand this extremism and I'm sad to see it in our community,
specially when other free projects like Firefox have been collecting way
more complex analytics (opt-out) for a while with a positive impact for
them.
