I think you're nuts!!
He wants the bill to stop websites from forcing ads on us as well as collecting personal information-essentially cyber stalking and fishing.
Personally, I have never in my life saw on ad on a website I used, clicked it then bought a product or service from one of these sites. Fact is if I
do click it, these people see who I am and that website owner makes money.
From there, a lot of them track your activity around the internet and build a profile of your activity. In some cases, as I have experienced first
hand, you encounter harassment.
A lot of these ads are clicked by kids or rely on "there's a new sucker born every minute" ideology.

The last one is real and yes, I believe it's an element to the destruction of free thinking. Currently, we do not have the freedom to choose NOT to
have these ads, they're forced and realistically, I don't think there's a single person on the internet that wants them, other than the people
making money from them.
It's gotten so bad that youtube now has commercials and sponsors.
I use Firefox and Flashblocker. With which I block countless ad images and flash videos which has made my internet experience far more enjoyable and
productive the last few years. The logic here is, a site like A.T.S. would go under and no longer hold purpose. I honestly don't see enough activity
here for someone to make money off of obnoxious ads that would create a loss of revenue/income and an ability to pay their bills.
Crap like that Bank of America banner gets clicked unintentionally if ever and really, the LAST thing anyone that comes to this site should be
endorsing is the banking industry!
WTH is wrong with you people?
