Although I can agree that many of these tools do not offer (significant) 
protection against unwanted data gathering. It's good that such a list 
comes to the attention of the people who are worried about their privacy.

Even with false hope, a society without hope is doomed...

I hope some people will take time to switch to some tools and spread 
that knowledge further.
