Pollute their browsing-history database
We have to be realistic about attacking this practice.
- Some ISPs are sleazy, and will do this as long as there's someone willing to pay for them to do it
- The people doing the paying will only do so as long as they get information that's financially useful to them
- The best angle of attack is to pollute the browsing-history databases to the point of uselessness, so that nobody is willing to pay for the info.
