    Not amusing at all. They are all at one way or another. Make sense to keep ads blockers well maintained.

    No surprise there really. DNT does nothing; it's only a... I got no words actually. :D But, DNT only says Hey stupid, I don't want to be tracked. Then, the tracking service thinks Yeah, you wish!. Good luck with DNT. :argh:

    So, IE10 enabling DNT by default means nothing of whatsoever, so it shouldn't be a surprise that Microsoft does something like what's mentioned in the article. :ouch:

    It will never stop. Ads are the bane of society. Wish I could use Adblock Plus everywhere not just on my computer.
