Re: Yahoo shuts it off Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I saw another reviewer who complained that Yahoo shut off DoNotTrackMe and the response was "Hello -- this message was about the DoNotTrack signals that come from your browser, which is entirely different than DNTMe. DNTMe will still work on Yahoo." However, I just had the same problem and the DNTMe toolbar icon indicated that it WAS allowing tracking on Yahoo. I checked and DNTMe was indeed off for Yahoo because it was 'suggested' by Abine as an okay site. I clicked the blocking back on but it is annoying that the service continues to follow these 'suggestions' even though I specifically disabled the 'suggestions' in the option menu. I'd prefer that the service just block all sites without any exceptions that I don't add myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well, this works great for blocking the sites that the developer thinks should be blocked, but there seems to be no way to blacklist companies that the developer 'suggests' shouldn't be blocked (such as Google Analytics). I tried turning off the "Use Abine tracker suggestions" button but Google Analytics remained unblocked on every site unless I manually changed it. Get the "NO Google Analytics" add-on in addition to this one if you want to block everything.
