I just installed a program called “Privdog”. You can read about it @ this link “http://www.privdog.com/”.

Anyway that program tells me that when I come to LJ it blocks the following on my computer.

Ad Networks…....................................................................1 Sanitized

3 Tracking cookies

Statistics….............................................................................1

So I believe these tracking cookies are tracking where you go and direct ad to you when you come here.

So if someone on your computer is looking for bras and panties guess what’s going to pop up.

You are being tracked at this site.

Hey my man!

pup up ads? Also your Link doesn’t work.

Not entirely sure what this means ..”You are being tracked at this site.”

If your on Another Site and they put a Cookie on Your Computer, their product is likely to show up as an Ad on whatever Site your on. “Tracking Cookies” do just that. They track your Browsing and us it for whatever they want to.

The above is Subject to Correction by one of the many Jocks on here that know LOT more about this than I do.

Yes the link works if you know how. Highlight the link without the ” marks, then right click and open in a new window, basic stuff.

The program will block those cookies on this site and other sites.

Basic Stuff? Not really. It didn’t work. Very few others, if Anyone on here will know how to do that also.

If anyone else here puts up a link it’s usually Blue and a simple matter of left clicking it and going directly to the site. OR! Using the Link emblem in the Brown box on top when you’re in the “Composing Mode”.

As so … Link Is Here

Also as so Link Is Here

And AS SO: http://lumberjocks.com/AlaskaGuy/workshop

That’s how it’s usually done here. Very Straight Forward, Simple, Basic Stuff.

Well it work of me so I guess you won’t get there even if you wanted to. Of course it’s not to difficult to type in to a search engine box “www.privdog.com/‎”.

How come you can do all the fancy computer stuff but you can’t deal with a web address that’s not in blue?
