To RangerX Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Wish it were possible for me to reply to you directly. Regarding this:
"My only concern is that recent reviews have disappeared that questioned whether an ad blocker addon owned by an ad industry related company (Evidon) might be a conflict of interest... But I am having a problem with an addon owner deleting negative reviews."
If my understanding is correct, developers cannot delete users' reviews. We are able to delete our own, though.
As for the conflict of interest— well, I have to say I'm a little wary now that you've mentioned this affiliation, so I'm definitely going to look into it. :) Thank you for the head's up, it's much appreciated. :)
Hi Larashots thanks for posting.
I've answered the concern of RangerX so you may read the reply, but I'll repost it here as well:
First of all, I routinely review all the submitted reviews and flag the ones that are support requests for deletion. While I cannot delete a review myself, a flag will mark a review for administrator review and at that time, reviewer, who is an AMO editor, re-reads the reviews and acts on them as they see fit. Since this area is for reviews only, generally, all support requests will eventually be deleted.
Secondly, Ghostery is a piece of software developed by Evidon. Evidon is a privacy compliance company, in short, its mission is to provide privacy tools to various players in the privacy space such as advertising companies, publisher sites, ad networks, and compliance agencies like BBB or DMA. Evidon's development of Ghostery is not in a conflict of interest but a direct extension of its mission to provide privacy tools: Ghostery is a tool provided to end users to enhance their privacy as they navigate the webbernets. Heres an article on how Ghostery works and helps Evidon: http://purplebox.ghostery.com/?p=1016020665.
Ghostery is AWESOME! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
YES! Thank you so much for this! I just started using Ghostery a few minutes ago based on someone's recommendation. First of all, the Ghostery Configuration Wizard is brilliant. Choosing my options was a clean, easy job.
The popup that shows the sites trying to track my activity is small and unintrusive. I also totally appreciate that the user can determine how many number of seconds it displays. (Seems like the developing team thought of *everything*!)
I highly recommend Ghostery, and I'll never browse without it again.
6 out of 5 stars. :p
