Isn’t this sitemeter logging a bit too excessive?
I have just realized that sitemeter has the following data published about my visit, in a searchable and browsable format:

I am not a privacy geek, but isn’t this a bit too extensive? By the way, I am not from Etyek, Hungary, I am from Budapest, Hungary. Etyek is a very small village, so if sitemeter consistently identifies me as someone from Etyek, then it will be even easier to track my lesswrong browsing habits. It is very easy even without that.
