Ublock origin is an absolute must these days.

Especially with firefox f***ing up noscript. Thankfully ublock medium mode/umatrix exist.

Right, so you think it's fine for a third party to add whatever they want to pages you request?


Way to make an absurd generalization from a specific example.

The example is of a third party adding whatever they want to pages you request. You seem to be compliant with that. Which one of these is wrong?

Yea, got a problem? It's a free market, you FREELY agreed to their ToS. How about you LEAVE if you don't like it?

Is it in the ToS? Feel free to link me to the appropriate section there. The support guy from Comcast quotes an RFC and it even seems their usage of their system does not fall within the requirements described there. Unless it's been changed, that is - it's after all, an RFC.

Can you confirm it follows the documentation strictly? I already think it desn't, but can you prove it conforms on all accounts?

Your ISP broadcasting service relevant messages in traffic over their system to customers through a documented mechanism is no different than a tv station dropping notices in a banner at the bottom of screen on the program you're watching.
When nothing remains everything becomes possible.

So... you haven't even read the ToS? Then why are you commentating on a topic you clearly have no knowledge of?

So, you can't even prove that it's "fine", yet you comment saying that?

So...have you read the ToS or the RFC? Because there is documentation but I believe their usage of to not comply with it. Can you prove it was correct? You seem to be OK with it and yet I can't see any evidence why. The things you cite all seem like you don't even know how their system is supposed to operate. Alternatively you know and the documentation I've seen so far is wrong.
