I completely agree with you Creedo, but one potential problem is that while all of us are just randoms protected by a crowd, if a malicious actor does get a hold of info that can turn a random into a specific individual, that 'crowd protection' wears off by virtue of the fact that someone knows who you are, and could potentially target you for various frauds or extortion.

But if the data is properly anonymized (which to be fair you shouldn't necessarily just assume will be the case) then I really can't see the problem.
