Disable iTunes 6.0.2's reporting of listening habits

Wait a second.

You mean that in order to recommend other music to me, they have to know what I listen to?

This is a travesty. An absolute travesty. Heads on pikes, man.

Seriously, dude, calm down. Your rights haven't been violated here (you DID agree to the EULA, after all), and you can turn it off with a single button. Don't like the MiniStore? Don't use it.

... you can turn it off with a single button.
A single unlabelled button that was carefully hidden amongst a field of other predecessor buttons. Forgive me if that seems like a pretty underhanded excuse for an after the fact opt-out.

Sending any of my personal information outside my computer is a drastic step, one that requires very explicit notice and consent before it takes place. Not just a mildly concealed way to stop it once it's already happened.
