you need to get off your high horse.

not only do i have a hosts file, which is appropriate for blocking
*some* sites (not all), but i also use *far* more sophisticated and
easier to use tools that can automatically detect and block suspicious
sites on the fly. i also use more than one browser, configured from
very locked down to very (but not fully) open, depending on the site.

which *still* misses the point, in that you *can't* block everything
unless you go off the grid, and even then, you're still being tracked.

you *are* leaking data, far more than you realize and in ways you
haven't thought of, ones which google, facebook and others have known
for years.

for online, start here:

another one of your incorrect assumptions.

you have *no* idea what i do or don't do in regards to google or other
companies.

except you didn't.

all you did was demonstrate how little you know about the topic.
