Hey guys, i'm not entirely sure how tracking on websights works, do the trackers pay money to the web page hoster to be aloud to collect specific info on the people who view that page? or does it work differently?
I bring this up because i use the privacy suit extension on firefox and LQ didn't have any trackers about two months ago, but now there's always one, 'google analytics', and i've even observed 'google +' trying to profile me once while here.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
A couple comments:
* We do not use any kind of "trackers" that pay for access to data about LQ members or visitors. We take privacy seriously and try to make that pretty clear.
* We do use Google Analytics, but have for many years, so it's not something that should be showing up as new.
* The Linkback menu does have a G+ widget, but it's not trying to "profile" you.
