Re: Why do they track you?
I don't agree. If I'm watching a youtube video, they can infer from the type of video what sort of adverts to send me.
"But what about random cat videos?" I hear you say (I forgot to take my medication)
Well, use the same criteria as the advertisers use for those vapid celebrity/gossip magazines.
No, they do deeper tracking because they can.. Blocking their attempts isn't unfairly moving the goalposts - it's putting the goalposts back to where they always were.
