and the weight loss is more gym member ship in my area then i'd be panicking and seeing where the hell are those tracking cookies.
You mean you don't get them?
I get local ads even after deleting all my google cookies - I delete them all about once a week. And before putting in any geo data, I am targeted. I just assumed I am somehow encoded into their data base - or maybe they read someone else's cookies?
I gave up worrying about it but now I am a litle curious.
i use customize Google addon for firefox (google it, apparently you can't get it from the firefox addon database due to, errr idk what) and it allows for disabling of all traces to google, cookies, ads, and everything in between like SSL for gmail (back when it wasn't an option to default it)
