websites/privacy-sensitive-analytics#14: Remove screen capture ability

In websites/privacy-sensitive-analytics#10 we added the ability for the agent to automatically take a page screenshot when a bad domain is detected.

This was partly driven by jira-projects/CDN#17

But, I've decided I'm not comfortable with the implications of automatically screenshotting the viewed page. Whilst the capture only includes the page content (so no browser or notification bar), it still feels a step too far.

It also means having an option open on the server - I don't particularly like the idea of that either, it'd only take me to piss someone off online and they might decide to try and fill my hard-drive with compromising content as revenge.
