Yahoo is the latest company ignoring Web users’ requests for privacy

Quote:
Yahoo yesterday announced that it will stop complying with Do Not Track signals that Web browsers send on behalf of users who wish to not be monitored for advertising purposes.

“As of today, web browser Do Not Track settings will no longer be enabled on Yahoo,” a company blog said. “As the first major tech company to implement Do Not Track, we’ve been at the heart of conversations surrounding how to develop the most user-friendly standard. However, we have yet to see a single standard emerge that is effective, easy to use and has been adopted by the broader tech industry.”

When users click the Do Not Track setting in their browser, an HTTP header is sent to websites to state the user’s preference not to be tracked.

Anybody that thought that DNT was going to work voluntary by web sites or browsers has to be living in wonder world.
Tracking makes them large sums of money and they are not going to voluntary stop making money. Just another lib idea to make everybody feel good.
