Faking it, the government style.

The new "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights" appears to be a successful attempt to lull consumers into believing that they can get privacy on the Web.
Feb 23, 2012. CNET -- Do Not Track technology .... applies to targeted ads only and not to any other forms of tracking.

Abine conducted a quick online survey of 500 Internet users starting on Wednesday and found that 80 percent of respondents believed that Do Not Track stops data collection or removed tracking technologies from their computers.
It shows that with a clever name you can get 80% of people believe what they would like to believe.
