When introducing a new party to a converstation, in this case the KDE user 
mailinglist, it is usually very helpful to provide context to said new party.

When the discussion has happened on one mailinglist so far, a good way to do 
that is to provide a link to the discussion start in the original 
mailinglist's archive.

Assuming that was the reason for including this support mailing list, having 
basically no information about the problem does more harm than good.

Given the tiny pieces of information so far ("exposing personal data") I have 
to assume that Okular is attaching some kind of user input history to 
documents?

Is it attaching itself ("behaving like a virus") to the document?

You mean the Okular maintainer?
No idea who that currently is but did that person participate in the 
discussion on the Okular list?
