Re: (Amazon) was showing me ads for dishwashers
I agree with you, for the most part. I'm happy to pay for services.
I'm just not happy to pay for them by giving up my privacy.
If the website I visit serves me ads through its own site and doesn't track me across the web, I'll look at their adverts. If they offer a (reasonable) subscription service, I'd pay - I pay for a couple of sites I visit regularly already.
If they are going to plaster their sites with dozens of tracking cookies and scripts, they will have to suffer the consequences.
