    This comment makes me rather sad.

    If you have a gmail account then your email is held on googles servers not your PC. They have said they won't scan it for targeted advertising (although for what else they will scan it for who knows and they didn't say).

    If you have a gmail account (or facebook or twitter or credit card or library card or ever used the internet at all) and run some dodgy script limiting Microsoft telemetry you think you are free from all of it? How is O&O Shutup going to stop Amazon sharing your data with Facebook?
    You are changing the topic away from how Microsoft gathers user data. Let's stay on that topic please.

    It's a fight worth fighting for.

    I do my best to limit MS's telemetry without simply O&O, there exists multiple other methodologies.

    Microsoft is not the topic. The thread title is 'Google will stop scanning Gmail content Ad Targeting'
