Re: Re: Errr or this really @Gav
I'm not being naive nor am I being an apologist for Google, I'm not trying to defend them in anyway. I'm just pointing out that a privacy protection scheme that allows Google to act in anyway they feel like is about as much use a chocolate tea pot.
Now if someone draws up a laws that says website must follow a set of rules then the chances are that Google after a lot of bitching would probably follow, but if you think many of the sites on the web would you are naive.
A privacy scheme that works by having website decide whether they want to track you or not is not a privacy scheme at all. Its a pipe dream. And it just as much a market scheme as Google's tracking you where ever you breath on the net. Now you are probably well enough informed to understand that any claim made about these tools is just wishful thinking. But most users won't be, and will believe that when they click the box saying don't track me, they'll believe the marketing bs that they are now protected, when they're no more protected than wearing a white shirt will protect you from a rifle bullet.
