Did you know that The Verge delivers you to around 20 companies for advertising & tracking purposes? I didn’t. That might foul up your mobile web experience a little bit. Maybe we should try something different.
The Verge is an especially egregious example, but this is incredibly commonplace.
I’m interested in running a content blocker not because I don’t want to see ads, but because I feel the need to fight back against being opted in, without my knowledge or consent, to third-party collecting, tracking, and selling of my personal data just by following a link.
And if such blocking becomes a big problem for publishers, it’s up to them to switch to ad delivery methods without these privacy invasions.
