Websites no longer are sites
Thanks for starting the discussion - and I think that's what's needed most. 

A core problem is that the concept of a website has changed so dramatically.  Rarely is - A - website - A - place, or the site owner -THE - provider of code and content; or the sole, or even primary, consumer of data extracted from the visitor.  Don't leave out the parts played by (and motivations of), browser vendors or the web-search providers. 

Together, these factors contribute to a diffusion of responsibility for what happens to a "site" visitor - in terms of security, privacy and experience.  The result is that nobody accepts responsibility.   

Is what we have really what we want?  We'll have to look closely at the interplay of motivations that brought us to this situation; and then look at how we might rework the site-visitor-browser paradigm.

advertisers are no more likely to  go away than politics or flu season.   what is needed is better browser code with  much of the trash material simply re-directed to NUL

try the new reader plug-in on Firefox.   They did a good job with this.   i think it suggests the direction we need to go in browser coding
