DOUBLECLICK OPT-OUT PROCESS
I know there's been a furor over the Doubleclick tracking announcement,
and as someone
who believes in personal privacy with responsibility I'm just as annoyed
as many of you.
However, there's a way (supposedly) to force Doubleclick to not track
you by opting out of their system, which can be found here.
I'm categorically unimpressed by Doubleclick's choice to use
negative-option marketing, but at least it's a way out.

Funny thing is.. when you click submit it goes to a .pl or Perl file,
then quickly redirects back to a Microsoft ASP file!
