It's a long, not necessarily interesting story that involves my strong dislike of being tracked and advertised to and an amazing Sociology professor and how much a lot of internet advertising weirds me out.
You see, I opt out of getting flyers and junk mail, I've opted out of whatchamacallit phone calls and I just now discovered I can opt out of some ad customization (fancy term) online. You know, the type of ads where you check something on amazon and then all of a sudden ads appear on other pages for the same thing and you're like... excuuuuse me? So I'm adjusting my tin-foil hat and other cliches and sending my fellow Canadians the same choice...
Not saying it's bothering you too, but... why make it easy on them, eh? I prefer to be less trackable and I know the internet doesn't really work that way but still... if they're giving me an opt out option, you bet I'm using it!
PS I'm registered on the Do Not Call List (telemarketers) until 2021 now! Woot!
