Dude, you are delusional. Plain and simple.

Self-hosting has been completely possible since the beginning of time. It costs peanuts. And look what we have instead: Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, and so on. Nobody cares.

You think 99% of the population gives a fuck about "binaries" or "targeted ads"? These are the people who happily use nothing but Microsoft malware or systemd or whatever and give zero fucks about privacy or freedom. They have their every bowel movement or uttered thought tracked via "smart" devices, and they LOVE IT. Every single "thought" anyone in this "society" ever has is programmed in their minds by some corporate or government entity, and each and every one of these people is perched on the edge of their seat in anticipation of the day when their "smart" devices can directly read their minds also, so they can have a more intimate connection to their slave masters. They're better than you and smarter than you and they're sure of it, and you can't tell them shit.

You think ANYONE, particularly corporations who make all their money by siphoning it out of the pockets of these people, collecting all of their personal data and reselling it, while constantly brainwashing them to believe whatever their owners want them to believe, give two shits about any "Libre" ad system, or would have any use for that at all?

It's non targeted? Who the fuck wants that? The people who own this world want everybody TRACKED, TARGETED, OWNED--and their slaves WANT to be TRACKED, TARGETED, OWNED, with a slave collar around their necks. Hard truth. The most merciful thing you can actually do for any of these pitiful fools is grant them a quick death. Abandon all hope of reeducating or reaching anyone, other than a select, tiny few.

If you believe that even 1% of 1% are interested in your dream of "self hosting" anything, you are NOT living on the same planet as the rest of humanity.
