Re: Association of Parasites upset about 'do-not-track' default

It's just an extra HTTP header line that looks like this: DNT: 1. It's up to the web site owner to decide whether or not he wants to abide by the request.

Yup. In other words it's almost completely useless.

Perhaps. But the parasites can no longer claim that "consumers" "want" their scrofulous offerings. It might not be much, but it's a first step. Maybe in a while we can get some legal teeth behind it. Meanwhile, our position is explicit in "DNT: 1", and it is clear that a business that ignores this header is intent on fucking us over.
