First Post - Welcome

Welcome to 050520!

Today we are seeing an increasing amount of advertising everywhere we go. The more we try to get rid of it, the more it begins to pop up in other places--within our smart TV menus, infotainment screens in our vehicles, etc. We are constantly being told where to shop, what to buy, what to like. It's annoying and I've had enough of it.

Actually, I've had enough of it years ago. I've been doing my best to completely remove all advertising in my life since then. I would estimate that I've eliminated 90-95% of ads from my life so far by changing my habits, using new tools, and by no longer using products/services I once used.

If you're tired of advertising, join me by sharing the ways you remove it from your life!

Besides advertising, this site will also discuss other matters such as privacy, PII, dark patterns, lies (hidden fees, fake "sales", etc.), and how we disconnect at times, among other things.

I'm still in the process of setting everything up. Look forward to new posts in the coming weeks.
