Does anyone wonder why the Kindle is sending your highlighted text home to Amazon? I have a problem with this...

You can disable it. In fact the Kindle is basically just a flash drive, no extra software required. I don't even use their sync stuff, I do it manually with Calibre.

Plus I can't fathom why people highlight lines in the vast majority of books, anyway. Who feels the need to highlight a line in the latest Gears of War book, or the literary adaptation of Alien 3?

People highlight memorable passages that they want to remember or recite later. Unfortunately books are not exclusive to smart people, plenty of idiots and those with poor taste read as well.
