How the heck did Quantcast get here?

Okay, this is disturbing: Ghosterly is showing a tracker by an advertising network (Quantcast) as being blocked from this site… seeing how I know I never added such a tracker in the first place, I have to assume that a plugin is to blame. That means that I have to go and test them to try and find the culprit… and then I am going to have to decide whether I’d rather lose the functionality involved or live with their unwanted snooping. I’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE: I’ve identified the culprit, and unfortunately it’s WordPress’s very own Jetpack. I’ve added a privacy-protection plugin to block this ‘feature’… did I ever mention that I really don’t like being tracked?
