Does Youtube do the same? :3 ^W^ It gives recommended videos depending on what you see. Is the spyware like that?

Facebook and google do track you...
the facebook one was something like fcbdn or sumthing... and google one is gooleanalytics, which is practically on every site..

just the principle makes me see red...
I'm still not getiing involved in this FA vs. IB debate and refuse to take sides...
All i say is FUCK FA... just purely one sided comment, which has nothing to do with IB..

Nothing will ever Change FA is dying and something like this shows how Illegal acts will be done and no punishment given out for it.

Interesting this starts AFTER starting co-administration with another site. Regardless, I went into my 'puter's "hosts" file and added vigilink.com to be blocked (by telling it that it's at 127.0.0.1, aka "localhost"), then flushing the DNS cache... :P

But yeah- I've been saying we're due for another influx of former FAers, though I don't think this'll draw too many from FA-- Most won't care because they either don't know about it (a VERY large portion do not EVER read the AUP & TOS!) or have no idea how to block scripts or sites.

d.m.f.

I wonder if InkBunny is doing the same. I mean look, it took somebody hacking FA's page code to discover they were using VagLink. What about SoFurry, Yiffy Int'l, FurNation, AnthroStar, E621, Furry 4 Life, FurSpace, MyFursonna, WatchTail, not to mention all those regional and local forums and personal websites? Are they "neglecting to mention" things, too? VigLink isn't the only tracking company in the world!

you do realize that the 'downtime' to 'cover up their sins' was them adding a more permanent script to make it easier to opt out of the data gathering program. right?...

not to mention the programs effect really is not that much more complex than those counters people put on sights that shows how many times someonme has visited that page. really all that it is more than that, is it shows what region someone is visiting from, so like if 50 people from midwest america go from fa to amazon itll be like oh 50 people in this area of america visited Amazon"

its not like theyre digging through your personal information <_<

To be honest, I find that stupid. Come on, FA tracking me? Yeah right. That's why I opted out. Plus, 'Neer shouldn't EVEN be doing that.

how is this a red alert?...

they screwed up a TEST. of an INCREDIBLY Non-malicious piece of software. they fucked up, yes. they didnt announce they were testing it, but it was only a test. and dragoneer apologized for the confusion...

jesus christ, people need to stop being so eager to dig up extra drama.
