I'm glad I didn't pay for this research. I'm not sure what the point was other than The Register to allow some to air out their political views. I guess there was a mind block in creating articles.

My facebook is often littered with ads from purchases I made from developers. Political stuff usually comes from FB friends.
The last paragraph reminds me that governments don't like anything getting big other than itself.
