I must say .. I'm flabbergasted. Zero trackers?

#1
I visit on average 12 distinctly different sites, and ***only*** AmigaWorld.net has *zero*.

#2
I ***immediately*** donated 5pounds to AmigaWorld.net.
AND my by far desired way to donate is PayPal and it is here.

Most other places insist on a credit card.

5Pounds is small, but it shows my instant delight at the privacy I had not focused on.

@ggw

That's good considering some spam accounts have leeched onto the site.

@ggw

Thank you for your support.

The site only uses a cookie for log in purposes (which you can delete if you want to log in every single time you visit the site page - or set the browser to delete them automatically).

When DaveyD set up the site, it never made use of much in the way of adverts, so there wouldn't be the typical barrage of tracking cookies monitoring your use of the site.

Some news sites I've visited have a surprising number of tracking cookies unrelated to the actual working of the site itself.
