Hold on there. These are two different beasts. DNT is "please don't track me" 
and of course it won't work. Adblock is "I am not letting this through, deal 
with it" and has much more merit and chances of actually stopping stuff from 
getting to you.

Agreed.

There might, or might not, be hackers among us who are trying to hack on 
policy level. But those hackers, if they indeed are following (or maybe even 
taking part in) the discussions here, might not want to come out with such 
information, as the level of hostility towards any persons or organisations 
that can be painted as "working with The Man" or "taking the Man's money" is 
too damn highâ?¢.

In other words, FUD spread by "the Man" and the disinformation campaign, 
sowing dissent, creating hostility and distrust within the community, and in 
general the divide and conquer approach work wonders.

I consider these many levels more problematic than the fact that Project A 
takes government money to write FLOSS.

But I digress.
