User Data Collection and Selling, The Wrong Way

AccuWeather is under fire for their data collection and selling of that data even when users opt out. They have issued a response statement here.

As developers we owe it to our users to be open and honest, and also do the right thing. If we give them the ability to opt out of something then we better respect it. Earning the trust and loyalty of users is extremely hard to earn and stupidly easy to loose.
