Do Not Track or Do Not Sellconflict or convenience?

While browsing Ken Adams’ blog today, I scrolled down the bottom of one of his posts. Ken’s blog uses Disqus for comments. At the very bottom of the comment space, I saw a link, “Do Not Sell My Data”. Having clicked that link, I ended up on this page reading this right at the top:

We’ve detected that the Do Not Track setting is currently enabled for your browser. In order to opt into our ad training program, you must first disable this browser setting.

You are currently opted out of targeting and personalization. We strive to make the Disqus experience as personalized and relevant as possible for all users. In doing so, we collect non-personally identifiable interest information to deliver targeted content and advertising on websites that use Disqus as well as other websites you may visit.
