Just say no to Google?

Really?

Its much harder than you think.

To prove it... if you run NoScript, take a look at what scripts every site you visit have in common. They all have Google Analytics.

Why doesn't El Reg remove this script? They have Alasdair Dobbs who could probably cobble up their own analytics package and keep their site stats in house. So why don't they do this?

In fact why doesn't any of the other commercial sites do this?

That would be a very good article for any tech magazine to write.
