Do you think advertisers should be able to track consumer's online purchases? I think they should because this will help them give you relevant material that you would be willing to buy. Also, when they track your purchasing habits, they don't know you name or email; they just know what you like to buy.

Actually, they do know your name & email. The UK govt posted some personal data files to the internet. Advertisers simply cross-referenced the files with other data-sets. For eg: If you have data on purchases then you can cross-check it with corresponding files of health data. That way you can pinpoint the name, zip-code, and contact information of that person.

The days of privacy are long gone brother
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.
