#19: Dear Ghostery user and your 499 friends...

Thanks to all those who sent this in, and TGF for the screenshot.


This project was a crazy idea by @ow after getting so many crappy GDPR emails and shutdown notices. I write a handy daily briefing to keep up with, and understand these kinds of things.
