Re: It's not just (or even mainly) about 'relevant' ads

"If you say you don't want relevant ads, why do they still track you?"

For the same reason that telemarketers call numbers on the do-not-call list, or spammers try and get around anti-spam measures.

Arrogance.

"Sure, you don't want spam email/calls/ads, I get that, but my advert/product is DIFFERENT. I'm doing you a favour"
