So I had ablock off at your request for awhile. I don't mind the adds because they are no longer animated (why I deleted them in the frist place.
Then today I saw and interesting looking ad, and actually clicked it. But it didn't take me to a website, instead it asked if I wanted to run a plug in.
That got me thinking. I know that you lose revenue to adblock. I am not opposed at all to seen advertisements. I had no idea what script the add wanted to run, probably just a flash animation, but you never know.
Looking into it deeper, I have found a list of potential trackers on each NS page:
first of all, which one of these must be unblocked for you to get add revenue?
Score Card Research Beacon
second, what information are these things gathering from us?
