I read tutorials at WHT all the time. Mainly just to laugh at most of them.
I agree. Just because a well-known and experienced individual reads a hosting tutorial doesn't mean that they are un-experienced. There is always more to learn, and you can always learn more. Personally, I read more tutorials looking for interesting methods of going about doing things - perhaps the individual reading your tutorial was doing the same.
I wouldn't be comfortable visiting a site or forum that publicized it's visitor's browsing history and IPs.
No kidding, what a wonderful violation of privacy.
