I understand the privacy concerns about Google's consolidation of data... I'm not comfortable about it either. That said, if you have a supermarket or a pharmacy discount card, you're probably releasing much more private information than you are searching on Google.
I think, though, we're flogging the privacy issue to death, and we're not paying much attention to issues of how this affects our websites and our livelihoods.
Mod's hat off here... I see this discussion so far as a wasted opportunity.
why am I not surprised that you said this .. apparently members don't think that they are flogging the privacy issue to death ..
That said, if you have a supermarket or a pharmacy discount card, you're probably releasing much more private information than you are searching on Google.
and that statement is ridiculous..the supermarket doesnt track the other shops you go into for the next 180 days
why doesn't GORG need to send reps in here anymore ..they've decided it's not worth their while ( apart from ASA ) ..and it's becoming unnecessary ..when some mods and admins keep trying to steer the conversation away from what appears to matter to most members here ..
if all members are equal ( mods and admins included ) then I find it disturbing that we keep being told by the same few ( who have ..no doubt ..made friends at the plex ) what we should be talking about in WebmasterWorld..this place made it's reputation by being independent ..not by being steered ..
