Merry Holy Christmas: the end of third party interweb ads forever

Filed under: 170914 — Sagacious Himself @ 12:26 pm

I have been keeping this to myself for some time.  Blocking ads.  It is a right by extension from privacy itself derived from dignity — granted by God.

  • reduce data costs
  • speed page load
  • sacrosanct privacy

FDQN.

problem: Sneaky platforms use wildcards or psuedo-random domains.

solution:  RegEx DNSMASQ

IP addresses

problem: seemingly innumerable

solution: netblock

 

The final solution: ASN

If an IP address is like a house, then ASN is like a plot of land in which neighborhoods of houses may be built.  I can eliminate ads before/as an ad platform builds out sneaky architecture.

bad guy SHORT term solution:  create one-off IP addresses outside know ASN

arms race solution:  by attrition a new ASN is identified and blocked

I win.  I win again.  More winning for everyone.
