I love stupid comments like this. No one has access to these kind of statistics outside the developer(s), and I'm sure you know that.

I use Little Snitch and at least a couple friends (that I know of) use it as well.
We desperately need an (official) app like this for iPhone/iPodTouch. I know there are options available through "back channels", but maybe we need some kind of petition for this...
I would not dream of using a computer hooked up to the net without Little Snitch (or an equivalent?). Try it out for a couple weeks and see how much your apps phone home and/or other random or unknown places. Fortunately, for LS users, it's merely an attempt
to do so.
On your desktop/laptop, apps have nearly unlimited access to your personal information. Anyone who considers all apps to be 100% trustworthy is a fool. That's just not the way the real world operates. The majority are honest, but it only takes one bad egg to spoil things.
