Bill aims to ban microtargeting of political ads. I'd argue the same reasoning to ban targeted manipulation for political ads should apply to *all* ads. The Internet (and society) would be much healither w/o microtargeting. arstechnica.com/tech-policy/20

"People only dislike ads when they aren't relevant" is at best a myth, at worst a lie. People dislike *all* ads, but tolerate them. Given a choice between irrelevant ads w/ no tracking or highly relevant ads w/ extensive tracking, most would choose irrelevant ads.
