    If you would read the book, addons cannot do anythign like this.  Collecting the data is simple, and the book will show you how you can do that... but you would need to run a third party executable outside of the game, and that person would have to knowingly run that.  In short, this is a patently bad idea, so I suggest you not pursue it any further.

    As Jim said, the only way for that to be possible is if you wrote an external program. WoW addons purposefully have no way of communicating directly with the outside world. In order to go about this legally, the program would have to upload the data after WoW was closed (the way thottbot and similar websites gather data). Doing something like that requires skills far beyond the scope of this book.
