Just switched on Kaspersky private browsing and anti-banner features. My first click into Mudcat blocked 3 banners and 19 attempts to collect data. I am tempted to just leave it on but is this detrimental to Mudcat finances?

Cheers

I have had all the third-party blocking I can get on this machine when reading Mudcat for years now - the machine is old and slow, and the extra clutter slows everything down to the point that the site is totally unusable. On other machines I don't bother and let that stuff run.

How about posting a list of what "K" identifies?

For decades Mudcat has created a more pleasurable on-line experience by using:
Operating System
CPU and speed
Browser Type
Cookies
Social Media
Auto Fill
Notepad text that is open on pad
Network
Previous Site before entering MC
Next Site when leaving MC
Advertising from Google search
Location of ISP provider ( City, State, Country, Zip)
Unique user ID

There are dozens of ways to spoof and protect, and hundreds more to catch prey in the web.
