Default Clear Data?

So I went through my the applications on my phone and cleared the data of any app I did not use ie Peeps, Stock, Teeter, Footprints etc. I now have 103 mb free on my phone and the phone is running really smooth. Is there anything bad about this? I normally clear cache of a couple apps regularly but since I never used those programs I figured it would be okay to clear the data. What do you guys think?

I do the same. As long as you don't use them, there won't be a problem. Even if you do it to your browser, it really only resets all your remembered passwords.

I was worried for a minute because it took a few seconds to load my theme back up but after that everything worked great.

Clearing data on an app clears user data. In most cases you are simply clearing data that is stored from your input. The browser for example clears the bookmarks, passwords, etc. that you have entered. Because of the way Sense works some of the apps you don't use yourself are still tied into the OS and will store data. This is why some apps run in the background even when you don't start them and why some can't be removed even with root.

This is the way an HTC rep explained it to me anyway.
