"Acceptable Ads" are not acceptable without offering privacy options

I find an ad specifically targeting something related to my past browsing far more offensive than a flashing "Click Here You won a free X" ad.

The complete lack of acknowledgement that privacy is a concern users have is troubling.

If it were possible to only enable ads that don't track or collect information about you I would go for it, and I would trust you guys to vouch for those advertisers as not being douchebags. But now that "you guys" aren't you any more, the trust is gone too, and with this push for "An adblocker that doesn't block ads and doesn't care about your privacy", I think it may be time to move on to something.... less sleazy.

RIP in peace adblock
