This is a different problem. I wish that web browser where more responsible and propose to remove this meta data when uploading file. Hopefully a semantic aware environment would care about that. It is clearly a shame to restrict ourself localy just because of crappy tool.

Well, I don't share my photos using websites either :)
And when I put them on a web reachable location, I don't do it with my browser (but they are access restricted anyway).

But when I share photos with others, I can't control what they will do with them, so I can't be sure they won't be uploaded somewhere.

But tools to automatically strip sensitive metadata such as GPS tags make sense in any case because that is something anyone will rarely _want_ to share.
