    Yeah, I had noticed that site before. Useful. My Noscript blacklist is getting bigger and bigger.

    EDIT: I forgot to add another similar list.

    That's just the standard hypocrisy prevalent.

    In terms of hypocrisy, Mozilla isn't too far from the top. They seem to have made "privacy" their new slogan rather than functionality while getting most of their money from Google.

    I wonder what business model these privacy advocates have in lieu of advertising. Walled gardens?

    That list is probably woefully incomplete. Google analytics seems to be ignored by a lot of "privacy" tools, hell, I think even NoScript allows it by default.

    Really? I can't tell if that's correct as I import my Noscript settings every time I have to install it anew. However, since Giorgio introduced GA surrogate scripts some years ago I doubt that it's still whitelisted by default.
