## No DEAL!
Dear Interactive Advertising Bureau,
Your [DEAL](http://www.iab.com/iab-tech-lab-publisher-ad-blocking-primer) is toxic for human rights. You urge sites to coerce us to disable our web malware blockers and stop protecting ourselves. This leaves us open to malicious ads and to the violation of our privacy through behavioural tracking.

While others like [Alexander Hanff](https://www.opendemocracy.net/ourbeeb/alexander-hanff/whittingdale-is-wrong-it-is-advertisers-who-are-destroying-digital-economy) are doing valuable work to determine [the legality of the actions of your members](http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/04/23/anti_ad_blockers_face_legal_challenges/) (see [his recent letter to IDG](https://www.scribd.com/doc/314011726/IDGUK-27052016-Redacted)), we are going the technological route: **we will actively protect people from your attempts to detect and block their ability to defend themselves against web malware and tracking.**
Our response?
So our response, quite simply, is this:
No DEAL!
<strong>You have no DEAL!</strong>
