Goodbye Adsense

I’ve removed Google Adsense from this site as I disagree with the “behaviour based advertising” they’re now using.  This is a very “Phorm”-esque approach of tracking the kind of sites people visit, and using that information to further target the ads that are shown here.

I wholeheartedly disagree with this kind of advertising, monitoring peoples behaviour on one site and using that to serve adverts on another, and it has no place on my site.

I could opt out of displaying the ads – but not of this site being used to gather data on you, the visitors.  The only way to do that is remove Adsense entirely.

I recommend that everyone also opt-out of their tracking cookie.  Information for this can be found here.
