I hereby declare that I don't give a shit.

(If anyone is really concerned, maybe there could be an "anonymise"  
option when uploading a GPX, which would offset your timestamps by n  
amount - and correspondingly mark the track as tainted, so this false  
data wasn't used for any important analysis.)

On the other hand, if you intend to proceed with the above-announced  
plan, I am hereby formally warning you that I shall report you to the  
Environment Agency (in the person of my occasional drinking companion  
who helps run navigation on the Thames) for pollution of a main river.
