I'd bet that within two years, DNS Redirection ads and behavioral advertising are employed by every major ISP.

I guess it's just really galling to me that we're being sold down the river for something that in the grand scheme of things is not all that much of a moneymaker for these ISPs.

Honestly, all I care about is that it's made completely transparent to the user with a working way to opt-out if they're interested.

I can't draw the line there, Karl. The ISP is given the trust of its subscribers. You do you banking there. You file your taxes there. You exchange email with your lawyer there. You search Google to figure out ways to hide the bodies.

The Internet becomes quite a trivial invention indeed if you can't trust your service provider. Anything that puts the ISP at odds with that trust is a conflict of interest.
