considering that this is designed to be used in a situation where a need for information outside of the regular methods (read gov controlled media, no media or un"friendly regimes") sending such information is the same as an address since they could easily determine the EXACT location from it. heck a reverse DNS will narrow it down considerably. Ip though are very easily tracked the the exact device by an ISP. Im not saying that Outernet itself would do anything irresponsibly with this info, its the fact its being sent in the first place.
the fact that open internet is there doesn’t mean that the “powers” aren’t monitoring whats going out and what urls are being requested, and controlling that (Chinas Gov firewall anyone??) and using that information to determine who has “tried” to get “unauthorized” information.
The point here is that regardless of how benign this seems sitting in a comfortable AC cooled home, the fact remains that this information was transmitted from my location without my knowledge or consent, and fundamentally that is unacceptable.
