Dear AT&T: Why I Don't Love You Anymore

Relax in southern comfort on the east bank of the Mississippi. You're just around the corner from Beale Street and Sun Records. Watch the ducks, throw back a few and tell us what's on your mind.

Funny, I routinely get ads pushed at me using the wrong town name, those ads that pretend to be local (but are not even close, even while just pretending).

It hasn't happened again since, now days I am careful to not click the 'let google see your location' button. AGPS is a great idea for fast lock on to location but in this case the location was SOOOO accurate it could only have been the ISP selling addresses. These days if I fire up google maps it just shows london. If I do it at work shows the pop my employer uses. So in a way better at least on a laptop.

Right now one website I visit for some reason offers me ads for breast enlargements. My Moobs are quite big enough thank you :P. The day I get a targeted advert that suggests the algorithm has actually worked out what I like I'll get scared.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/01/1 ... tion_data/ Is pretty bad though. Unfortunately around the world the war of Terror was used by all sorts of politicians to push through changes to what was allowed that were not in the interests of the average person.

I'm a mod on another forum and constantly deleting viagra spam... while doing that the push banner ads ask me if I want to date russian women?

Lots of websites track cookies and when I'm price shopping I use that against them... they already know what prices I have declined to buy at. A little patience can pay off... and when they pay to push ads at me for stuff I already bought they are just throwing money on the ground, which kind of amuses me. :twisted:

Today I saw a similar but different truck as it turned out of my neighbor's driveway.
It turns out that he's a weight training customer who works for TeleMundo, a division of NBC/Comcast Deep State Broadcasting. :lol:
It's an ENG vehicle...
