Sorry guys, until you guys start PAYING ME to gather information about my surfing habits, I will do everything I can to block or spoof them so any information you gather is useless.

 

So you want a free service AND money? Pretty selfish man.

Free service? Last time I checked, Google or anyone else isn't paying my ISP bill, I am.

I just don't want to be tracked for using a service I pay for.

If Google doesn't like that, then fine, they can make it so you have to set up an account with them and agree to be tracked for the Google search and Analytic to work on ME.

I *DARE* Google to do that. Make it so that you have to set up an account and log in to do a Google search and see what happens to their company.I *DARE* them.

Otherwise, they can shove their tracking me and gathering my searching and surfing habits garbage.

While we're at it, OCN and every other forum should require you to sign up to view any information.

Imgur, Pastebin, Imageshack, Mediafire, Dropbox and every other online service should require you to log in to see any content hosted on their site.

Bing should require you to log in as well, and so should every other web search program. Shouldn't even be able to use IE without logging in with an MS account.

Your ISP should force you to login every time you want to use the internet, just like with Dial-Up.

Man, you know, it's almost like every single online service does exactly what Google does. Weird. And yet, you only target Google. Good to know that you're such a unbiased person. /sarcasm

Oh, and Google isn't your ISP, they get no money from you joining the internet. Their services are free aside from the information you want them to pay you for. Tunechi is right, very selfish indeed.

Yeah, I'm greedy because I prefer people ASK ME BEFORE they TAKE things from me. rolleyes.gif

If any of the sites have custom GA setups to track emails/usernames it's even easier.

Noscript ftw though. Kind of suspicious though... 2 days ago everything was fine. Then like an hour after this thread is posted I started getting XSS warning on youtube and other google pages. Perhaps they're trying to start by using another CSS exploit?

I block google analytics on every site I go to. If they want me to give them market research, they're going to pay me.

Your ISP actually does require you to login every time you want to use the Internet. Are you familiar with how modems work? I guess not.

Google gets no money from you joining the Internet? Is that a fact...? Maybe you should take a look at their business model in relation to consumer data mining.

Oh but they don't warn you. That's part of the issue he has yes? That they should warn you? Your ISP sure doesn't, and by nature they log eeeeeverything. All without asking you.

Also, no they don't, they just log in and stay logged in. Pretty much forever or until there's a power/service outage. It also doesn't care who uses it; what if you use the internet at a friends house? You didn't log in there, did you? Does that mean you didn't "give consent" for them to use any information you gave them during that time? Too damn bad, they'll use it anyway.

And yes, Google gets no money for you signing up for the internet. What, you think the ISPs pay them? No. They get money when you actively click on their ads or use their services. Just because you need one to do the other doesn't mean doing one means doing both. rolleyes.gif

It's also quite nice how you completely ignored every other example I gave.
