Sometimes a passive aggressive note can be a real relieve. Especially for the one writing it.
You are being watched. You are being tracked. You are being watched and tracked by all. And, you are making it easy for others to track you. I prefer not to inform people of my doings until I decide to reveal information I deem worthy of sharing. I have things to hide and I am proud of the things I hide.
Argh! to all those who create "rich" websites that are infested with scripting; both junk from third parties, cross site content scripts and ill-advised complexity. Especially when nothing can be seen on such site if no scripts are allowed on the client-side.
It is not just the NoScript or Adblock that help me, but also Greasemonkey[note], wget, elinks and lynx. Why are websites making it so very difficult to get information? I am not interested in your ads, but the information to further my knowledge. Is that so hard to understand?
Yes, yes, I hear complaining about "who will pay"-bla-bla. Do not, for any second, think that the web operators are altruistic. Either by clicks or by behavioral data, they sell you and your data and pass their grandmother along with the data free of charge. Why is it that some sites have layer upon layer upon layer of clicking and hiding. Don't let them and don't help them. Disable all scripts.
Note: Oh the irony, Greasemonkey is also scripts. However, it is not under remote control. I decide how it is written and what runs. That is the difference
