Random red dot…?

(Alec) #21

I don’t mind advertisers targetting me as long as they provide value. I unsub them pretty quickly if they don’t. I often review the ads provided and there is often something in there that is interesting. Our culture seems to have grown into ads being worthless: they are not to me, especially well-targetted ones (which is why I really don’t mind google knowing a lot about me).

I am a runner, so someone selling running shoes at a 50% discount is interesting to me. But if someone has got hold of my email address and is selling me cars, they get unsubbed, which usually works.
