It's a good start, but as is said in the reddit comments, the opting out is not as easy as it looks, especially My Life.

Also, it's amazing how incorrect some of the information is, not that I have a huge problem with that.

The problem I have is they want verifiable proof such as license which will also help verify any information they do have. Don;t have any illusions they will be deleting this information from their database but instead will be adding to it. They will just be preventing easy access to it.

thats a hard one. but here is a good start. when you post on CDF and an utter stranger begins to ask you to pump in personal data, stop right there.
nobody needs an inventory list of what firearms i got and where they are stored. where i keep money in the house hidden.
i see these posts frequently. when challenged as to why they need to know, they often say, i was just curious.
