It is fair to say I came in for a little criticism (here, here, here and here) for writing this post and in particular these comments.
The substance of the criticism seems to be the following;
That owning a mobile phone does not mean you give consent to being tracked (it does, because you know the mobile phone company can locate you).
That I made an untrue claim against NO2ID by suggesting they were hypocrites for owning mobile phones (as they surely must) and then campaigning against ID cards (NO2ID highlight the audit trail of ID cards as an invasion of privacy but say nothing about mobile phones - so my claim is true).
Dan Goodman makes this intelligent comment about Anarchism, asymmetry and privacy. This is the crucial point - it is not lack of privacy that necessarily causes harm but the lack of a reciprocal relationship in 'knowing someone else's business'.
The rest is mostly insults accusing me of being dim, lazy, a fascist etc. etc.
