    Comment to article "Gravatar Privacy Concern" (from techthinker, couldn't give the link) tells:
    "I am far more concerned that Gravatar-enabled blogs send my e-mail address to Gravatar whenever I comment (even if I am not a registered Gravatar user)"

    I've read a lot of discussions about Gravatar but could not find any on tracking of users not registered with Gravatar through gravatar-enabled blogs

    Is it true?
    Gravatar is from Automattic company that duumps (the word is with one "u" but "moderation system" here doesn't let it through) my comments irrespectively I use gravatar, registration or whatever, so I would not be surprised if it is true
