Title:
  Privacy manager should all present options to completely stop loggins
  from applications

Status in Activity Log Manager for Zeitgeist:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  I read about the Privacy manager in this blog post here
  https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/03/ubuntu-1204-will-bring-os-level-
  privacy-options. And the points that they state are valid.

  Like for instance, if you blacklist firefox, it stops Unity from
  detecting whether the user has run firefox or not and perhaps does not
  show it in the recently used apps. But this does not stop firefox from
  logging the web history of the user. The privacy manager should
  atleast display a message saying that "Privacy manager does not stop
  the application itself from logging data" but just Unity or Zeitgeist
  since otherwise the user will be confused. Or, you should provide
  options for the privacy manager to disable the logging of the
  application itself i.e stop firefox from logging web history.
