In this (my blog) i was left thinking and one day i visited the code for the eff stuff on github. I discovered that /wellknown/dnt-policy.txt has to have ssl which seems illogical as tracking does not need ssl, and that the dnt spec is still being written.
I know the eff likes the idea of https but that seems a bit like project bloat.
A long term project do not track it seems.
A definition of tracking is tricky – here is another example load a page with mobile query linked to the jquery site and bang your being tracked, install it on the website and serve it from your site and no tracking.
It’s infurating in its small minded way
