We had a pretty long discussion on the topic in the past on our forum (now gone) and we came to the conclusion that we would not add this type of option. Since the RuneScape hiscores are public and the data we track can be seen by anyone, adding it would not prevent those people from tracking your stats anyways. It's trivial to write a script to look up your stats and store the data periodically. There's also the problem of verification where we'd have to make sure the request is legitimate so people aren't abusing the option, and we don't have any system to do that. The real problem is Jagex's failure to implement something to allow people to hide their stats on the hiscores, and this is who you should be petitioning about the issue.

To add to what spling said - we are not the only RS stat tracker out there. Even if we had an option to stop tracking specific users, there is nothing stopping a more disingenuous tracker for tracking your stats. As spling said, this is an issue to raise with Jagex.
