Run a web site that blocks users who turn off cookies and java? How about rethinking your crappy, backwards attitude!
No, my little Linux blog is not going to change the world, though in this case, I wish it could…
We all know that web sites need to make money to stay in business. and we get that. Most commercial sites will use one of the many advertising companies like Google Adsense etc. to serve up advertising on their site. They do this by using cookies, little bits of text that will stay on your computer and tells them all kinds of things about you. Some of the data may include the last time you visited, your comment user name, what advertising you saw or clicked on etc. Worse, they can be used to track you as you go from site to site in the same ad network.
Are mainstream sites like the news site below using cookies for evil? No, but I deserve some privacy from your intrusive tracking!
Yes, we get it, we need to enable cookies if we want to participate, comment etc. But for those finding your site through a link from a news aggregator and just want to read the story quick and move on, you are doing us all a disservice.
To those sites who don’t play these stupid games, we thank you.
For sites that choose to block those of us who want a little privacy and security, we’ll take our web surfing elsewhere until you grow up.
