As noted here it’s likely that if not already, soon not only will you be paying exorbitant monopoly rates for internet access, the ISP will also sell your web browsing history.
There’s another option, fill their database with so much garbage that it’s useless. This will not defend against ISP’s selling your data, however if enough people shovel enough shit into the system the buyers will eventually realize the data is useless and stop buying.
Introducing Obfuscatron GIGO 0.1.0.12 this is a start. I would love to see more people create more systems like this, run them all! Fill their databases with garbage that is indistinguishable from real data!
If there’s enough interest I’ll keep enhancing this. One idea I have is to provide a list of Zip codes for the U.S. and allow URL’s in the ‘seeds.txt’ list to contain place holders like %ZIP% that the system replaces with a random zip code.. May be useful for weather and travel sites.

NOTE: this works best if you have a computer that’s on 24×7. If your computer goes to sleep, so will this. It’s likely still helpful, just a bit less due to leaking your PC active hours (that may reveal when you work, got to school, come home, etc).
