Re: Filter lists suck
"If you have things run on your machine rather than remotely you get something which can interact with you with a tiny latency"
True, but relative to other factors (such as security), that is very unimportant to me.
"you also get something which (at least potentially) doesn't vomit your information to some remote system you don't own or probably trust."
Potentially is the key word here. In reality, client-side scripting or not, if a site wants that information (and most seem to), they're going to use every trick in the book to get it. Client-side scripting makes that effort so very much easier.
"The flip side of course is you end up running code you may not trust."
I don't, as I don't allow script to run.
Neither of your points sound like meaningful wins to me.
