    ... most of the web pages in cyberspace, and those little bugs plant "tracking cookies" (read "stalking cookies") on your computer and follow you around.

    Even if you've never had a FB account.

    There are free privacy tools available that will enable blocking all of that shit: I have my settings turned up to 11 so I never see it.  But there shouldn't be a need for people to take those kinds of steps to avoid getting stalked.
