My machine is clean.

Here’s a Safari (OSX) Activity display from loading the home page…

Here’s how it gets there…

Home page source includes…

< script type=’text/javascript’ src=’’ >< /script >

This script includes…


full Url of which is…

THAT script includes multiple references to scorecardresearch, as well as comscore

It could very well be that this is happening unbeknown to you.
I don’t have a problem with collecting stats (well, I do, but I’m pragmatic and I realise it has to be done).
There are 2 problems…

1) If ComScore want to collect data then fine. BUT if they’re going to trumpet the fact that they are user friendly, and say (on scorecardresearch’s site) that sites using the system must tell us, and give us the chance to opt out, then that has to happen. If Kontera uses scorecardresearch then THEY must surely assume those responsilities too. As a member of TRUSTe they have obligations. I also, personally, don’t think it’s very “user friendly” of them to simply ignore my complaint.
2) When scorecardresearch is down, which seems to be fairly often – pages never finish loading.
