    I've spent 20 minutes or so configuring umatrix for this site. The amount of calls to other sites is staggering. I've been pretty much reloading and white listing css, images, script, XHR, and frame. I want to disable scripts. Will that affect the revenue for your site? I'm currently blocking cookies, plugins, and other.

    BTW, I've also seen three popover ads since I've enabled this. I will disable access to sites that contain popevers though as I encounter them. So far I'm just white listing at this point.

    If you have never seen umatrix, it is like a firewall for your browser. Very impressive. Works on Firefox and Chrome.

    Hi,

    I don't remember clicking, I do remember that pressing esc twice made it go away. Thanks for taking an interest in this...

    Finally, publishers have little insight into the types of tracking occurring on their own sites. The tools that we and others have built can be re-purposed to provide transparency not just to end-users but also allow publishers an in-depth look into how trackers collect data from their sites, where the data flows, and how it is used. This will allow them to discriminate between advertising or analytics providers on the basis of privacy practices.

    Hah! It happened again.

    Actually it redirects me to intermediate pages first:
    Code:
    http://109.206.167.217/?t=s&winbid=0.13&k=293d496d9f1133b7c29189ef8cd57f92

    http://upflvs.tsgwe.com/up/cd/index.html?s1=xad348-defrauca-160-js-lm&s2=browser-de-cd&id=217&q=029f787f-6d5c-4c21-b4cb-17910838a7c7
    Which then executes some more JavaScript, and after being redirected a couple of times I end up at the aforementioned site.

    Yes, I connect from Germany.

    It doesn't seem to happen any more, so I cannot tell which exact script it came from.
