I don’t want to block ads, dear web site operators. But trackers, yes. I want to visit your site without them collecting data. There is IMHO no justification for packing all those trackers on your pages.

Especially when one of those trackers/ad servers sends IMHO evil malware that sends me to an obvious phishing/scam „offer“ as happened here.

So me using filter software (in this case Klar by Firefox for iOS) is not me trying to scam you out of ad revenue, it’s just simple digital self-defense because YOU let these scammers on your pages.

And no. Your “we respect your privacy” pop-up that only allows me to accept everything you and your tracking/ad-servers want to throw at me is everything but respecting my privacy.

‪You and your ad-server/tracking cronies killed “Do Not Track”. You made sure that opt-in wasn’t possible and made opt-out impossible. You cried when the EU introduced and started geo-blocking EU users instead of accepting and respecting the law. ‬
