You could be right, but it seemed like you were saying the results were not personalized when you were logged out at all, and that's where I was thinking you were seriously mistaken, also, any time you delete your cookies if you turn it off the way you do (and it works) you need to do it again, because it's on by default, and maybe they don't show people differences in results, but do you really think they stop tracking you just because they don't show you the results of the tracking?
One of the reasons I asked the question is because my results don't appear to be 'personalized' *ever* because there's no difference between logged in and logged out and cookies and no cookies so IMO it looks like they're either all personalized or they're not personalized at all, and I wonder which it is?
I cannot prove turning personalization off works, because my results are the same either way and for there to be personalization / no personalization there would have to be a change in what I see wouldn't there?
If the results are always the same something is not working, IMO...
ADDED: I don't mean my results don't ever change by hitting different data centers, but I do mean if I click refresh a couple of times I can usually switch back and forth between one set and another, which is not personalization... It's simply hitting a different dataset.
