Default Big Brother OpenBSD

I recently discovered that I am being tracked while installing OpenBSD.

This is not new, but I am very annoyed and dismayed that there is no "opt out" feature in the OpenBSD installer. And that the collection of user data by OpenBSD is not openly discussed in the installation documentation.

Here is a script that retrieves some of the information stored at OpenBSD (129.128.5.191):
(Change the architecture, i386, to match your own system)

Code:
#! /bin/sh
# Show the info that OpenBSD collected on you during the last installation 
curl http://129.128.5.191/cgi-bin/ftplist.cgi?path=/pub/OpenBSD/5.4/i386
