After reading the Davenport Lyons thread, I installed Peer Guardian. Now, when I visit Bit Tech... everything stops, and I'm informed via Peer Guardian that it's blocking my IP from Double Click.inc and Valueclick.inc Are these known ad contributors to the forum site? If Peer Guardian has these companies on their block list, would they be gathering information from me normally, via cookies? I would rather anything on that list keeps blocking to be honest, but then Bit becomes unusable slow. Advice? [EDIT] Or am I being paranoid and allow HTTP?
