The best way to minimize this risk is to use a specialist Linux distribution such as Kodachi.

I wondered what was blocking it. It seems there are 18 ad trackers and 20 third-party cookies. The one that is blocking things is TowerData which anchors profiles to their email address. That is so wrong. I understand you finance the site with advertising and selling data, and I've appreciated this site for over 10 years and nothing is free but TowerData was a surprise to me.

I tested the link in Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Iridium.
I'll forward your other concerns to our site moderator.
Yes, ads are what keeps the lights on here, and thank you for sticking with us all these years.
