Little Snitch, an outgoing network traffic blocker, notifies me when an application is attempting to establish a connection.
Many applications that I've installed have apparently registered themselves into the help system, and periodically cause helpd to connect to their individual help/tracking/metric gathering domains. I doubt that Apple intended on this sort of spying and one shouldn't need a blocker to stop it. So, I'm probably just unaware of how to configure helpd. Anyone know how to stop this unwanted traffic?
