blocking all the google trackers? every other site has them.

trying my best

Also, because they are actively attempting to gather a catalogue of information on the American public, they will eventually succeed (unless something changes, such as legislation being passed).

My argument is that we shouldn't make it easy for them, and attempting to restrict our usage of their platforms means the harder they have to work for that particular information, given a small population. Once you have a bunch of people that will willingly advertise for you for free, I feel that power kinda goes out the window too.

Perhaps I am being slightly idealistic, but if I want to see change in the world, surely I should attempt to live that change?
