      1. No, TZP has scripts for the whole page “allowed.” Seems the poll was blocked by Ghostry as containing trackers. Didn’t used to do that, since I participated in may polls earlier.

        Can’t win. Anyway, I’ll pass. 🙂

        1. “Some say that Ghostery, Inc. plays a dual role in the online advertising industry.[weasel words] Ghostery blocks sites from gathering personal information. But it does have an opt-in feature GhostRank that can be checked to “support” them. GhostRank takes note of ads encountered and blocked, and sends that information back to advertisers so they can better formulate their ads to avoid being blocked.[19] Though Ghostery claims that the data are anonymized, patterns of web page visits cannot truly be anonymized.[20] Thus not everyone sees Evidon’s business model as conflict-free. “Evidon has a financial incentive to encourage the program’s adoption and discourage alternatives like Do Not Track and cookie blocking as well as to maintain positive relationships with intrusive advertising companies”, says Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford grad student and privacy advocate.[21]”

          “According to some journalists, Ghostery is not transparent in how it collects data from users or what that data is used for. Other journalists have claimed that Ghostery sells user data to advertisers to better target their ads.[24] Ghostery, Inc. denies this, asserting that Ghostery does not collect any information that could be used to identify users or target ads specifically at individual users. To support their assertion, the company made the source code open for review in 2010, but after 2010 further source have not been released.[25]”

  1. I wish we had the choice of: “We don’t want to take your guns away” which is then joined with “We should follow the example of Australia.” (…which imposed “compensated” confiscation).

  2. I wrote in my own (this is a variant, due to the character limit on the “Other” fill-in field):

    Nobody wants to take your guns; we just want “common-sense, reasonable” measures to “improve safety” (that will justify and require us to take your guns).

    Not sure why this option wasn’t included.

  3. I had to figure out how to disable tracking protection for this site in Firefox. You click on the shield to the left of the site URL, in the address bar, and then click a button.

    I voted ” Nobody needs military grade weapons…”. That, of course, is one thing the Supreme Court has supported since the beginning, and was the basis of US v Miller, which would probably have found the NFA to not apply to short-barrelled shotguns had there been a witness to testify to that.
