Paper or electronic?

The Times has been very good in their recent efforts to inform us of their new non-privacy policy, invasive as it is.  From their notice:

2. We may use and share information that you provide, or that we collect and store, including emails and other personal information.

  • Use: We may email or mail you communications, including promotional messages, using the contact information we collect while you are using the Services.
  • Sharing: We may share information we collect and store while you are using the Services or other sites with affiliates, service providers, and third party advertising service providers for their own use, including advertising and sending promotional messages.

3. In connection with ad serving and ad targeting on our Services, we notify you that in some cases, device identifying information could be used to identify you personally. 


Evidently the simple act of reading a portion of the Times via some electronic device will now allow them to provide our personal identification to others.

We deserve better

    Short form is that we will suck all the information about you that we can and sell it to anyone who will pay us for it.

      Bing does that, Apple does that, AOL does that, Google does that. You’re complaining about the Times, really? In order to stay afloat, they have to make money. They are doing what every site on the internet does.
