It doesn't matter what sort of clever idea Google comes up with. When it became clear that the spyvertizing industry only pretended to be cooperating with consumer advocates long enough for the govt to forget that they were threatening mandatory privacy protection it was clear a state of war existed between them and everyone using the web. From that point my willingness to cooperate with anyone serving less intrusive ads evaporated and instead of only manually blocking highly disruptive (audio, animation, or overlay) ads, I started using 3rd party feeds to block everything. Nothing short of non-opt in tracking being made illegal and violators to include all the executive management of offending companies being jailed will convince me to relent. They've poisoned the well. Let them die from it.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
