Two consumer groups asked the Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday to create a "do not track list" that would allow computer users to bar advertisers from collecting information about them.
The Consumer Federation of America and the Consumers Union also urged the FTC to bar collection of health information and other sensitive data by companies that do business on the Internet unless a consumer consents.

This seems like a good idea. We already have such systems eleswhere, however, an opt in system would be better for the consumer, but less attractive to the advertiser.
