SEW Experts: Can Google Analytics Be Evil?

In today’s Search Ads column, “Can Google Analytics Be Evil?,” Tony Wright is looking for feedback on Google Analytics.

Is he right to be wary, or are the benefits of a free and easy to use analytics application worth any potential risks? Share your thoughts in the SEW Forums.
