    Glad to hear it. Chrome is great for visiting Flash sites and unlike Safari (which is my default on a Mac) it's syncing comes across to my work PC nicely

    Gatorguy, do you have any idea why g-sting (in their infinite Pagian wisdom) has removed the discussion search and its api? They did one thing right with that (which was also overdue when they did it) and now they 've removed it... Don't mean to flame or troll, just an honest question.

    I've no idea what you're referring to. Have you searched up the question with a web query? There's normally discussions on-line where the reasoning behind various decisons at different companies is discussed. That's where I'd go look (if I had any idea what you were talking about).

    And figuring out how to avoid them again, and figuring out how to avoid them again...

    I've played this game over the years with all sorts of data harvesters: you get on their lists by signing up for an account somewhere, they automatically opt you in for everything, requiring you to spend time trying to find the way(s) to opt out, only to have them add/change their opt-in options and automatically opt you in again.

    These days I sign up for as few online accounts as possible, only stay logged in to an account for as long as I need to, and use a combination of plug-ins and browser options to block tracking, cookies, ads, etc.  Chews up far less of my time than continuously jumping through the hoops the data harvesters set up for you.
    Would you pay to use a website or discussion forum to avoid ad-targeting or user tracking? Honest question and I encourage anyone's comments.

    I would. In fact, I do at this site.

    To be more specific if Google decided to charge to use, or at least strongly encourage a small donation to the site owner rather than using advertisers' money to fund it would you buy in?

    Thanks! That is fresh news, just a day old.

    1) that is one great initiative

    2) the details are...scarce:
    https://www.google.com/contributor/welcome/

    3) I understand this is just the beginning, but simply see the placeholders where the ads used to be displayed makes for a 'awkward' experience. But I do understand that we can't expect we designers to run 2 versions side by side.

    This will be interesting to see how it develops.
