Marketing Intrusion… 2 comments

I have a few words for this guy:

Mookie Tanembaum, founder and chief executive of United Virtualities, says the company is trying to help consumers by preventing them from deleting cookies that help website operators deliver better services.
“The user is not proficient enough in technology to know if the cookie is good or bad, or how it works,” Tanembaum said.

Mookie, take a used hot poker and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
We can make our own decisions about which cookies or other server generated markers we want to keep on our systems! For a fee I might consider letting you keep a few more markers on my system but you damn well better ask first.
I’m rather perturbed that I now have to spend time learning how to configure Flash Player to kill off the stuff ol’ mookie is trying to spawn and then propogating that accross all the family systems.

    Amen Steve! Who do they think they are thinking we don’t know what we’re doing. Stupid cookies. Sometimes they interfere with the computer and the easiest thing to do is delete them all!

    Yep, we’re way too stupid to know that we want intrusive cookies placed on our computers that send private information to companies like United Virtualities, who sell it to the highest bidder.
