I used to think that way. But the number of advertisers who actually *do*
tailor their pitches according to what they know is, from my experience, so
miniscule that I have since reversed myself. I would prefer to receive no
advertising at all. The time I would waste looking for something I actually
needed/wanted would be smaller by an order of magnitude or more than the
time I currently waste dealing with mistargeted marketing.

Have fun,
