I'd personally feel much better having DDG serve ads than having an MSN/Bing/Yahoo script appear on DDG's pages. Companies like MSN and Google are using sophisticated behavioral tracking systems, storing that data longterm (or forever), and sharing such data with 3 parties.
It's within DDG's power to serve ads not based on tracked/stored surfing behavior, but purely on keyword relevancy. That's much less tracking than is probably currently occuring with MSN/Yahoo ads.
