Do Not Track

Post by Tinman57 » Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:37 am

The Do Not Track standard has crossed into crazy territory
The advertising industry wants to change the definition of Do Not Track into something Orwell would be proud of. One influential member of the W3C working group says he's lost the energy to go on. Is it time to kill Do Not Track?

Yahoo to ignore Microsoft's 'Do Not Track' signal from IE10

Yahoo will ignore "Do Not Track" privacy requests sent by Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 browser, calling its ally's unilateral decision "signal abuse" and pointing to a possible rift between the search partners.
