I do not see

I see why so many people took issue with NebuAD in the first place. What they were doing seemed illegal.

They're the same extreme r'wing nutcakes that change their online id/avatar/location on a monthly basis.

You know what I mean?

Legal, yes. Ethical, not even by a long shot. This is why...

As we've stated in the past, NebuAD's cookie-based system opted users out of receiving the system's targeted ads, but it didn't opt them out of data collection and sales.
When I request an opt-out of something I should be able to opt out completely of any activity that company does with my information. This half ass approach of yeah you will no longer receive ads but we will still collect and mine your information with the potential possibility of selling it for gods amount of money to another company is just plain flat out wrong and immoral in every way you can think of. It is my information, I generate it, I should have complete control over it, plain and simple.

I won't offer any insults, as you do have a valid point.

I offer this counter-point. It is also not illegal to rape a being from another planet. They don't enjoy human rights because that only applies to a human from this planet.

That's a silly counterpoint, but they offer the same insight. Neither are illegal because up until it happens, nothing of the event ever existed. Kind of like "Methamphetamine" was not illegal when it was first created.

So I could offer then "I don't see why so many people took issue with raping women from planet XYZ, what they were doing was perfectly legal" or "I don't see why so many people took issue with me giving meth to my kids everyday, what I was doing was perfectly legal".

Something not being illegal doesn't always mean it should never be illegal.

I'd love to follow your wife and kids around the supermarket every time they go shopping.

Same difference.

I KNOW you wouldn't get upset over this as it isn't illegal either.
