Yeah, but it doesn't get all of the definitions that way.

Could not participating in Community hurt detection rates.....I suppose, at least a little.  One user is a tiny drop in the pond so the minority that turn it off (or even realize the option is there) wont make much waves.   Maybe if a whole lot of users turned it off, some negative impact could be measured, but that is not going to happen.
