So does everyone on LJ pretty much use that lj-toys thing to collect stats on who is reading their journal? I had some network issues today and when I hit my friends page I saw that just about every other entry had this little frame in the middle of it:


I assume that means people are tracking and logging and all that. I also assume it doesn’t work on me because I have a referrer-blocker (RefControl) plugin as well as my cookie-limiter (Cookie Monster) and ad-blocker (AdBlock Plus.)

Me? I don’t have secret little 1-pixel trackers. I have direct HTTP logs and that “(n comments)” image, plus Analog to turn those raw logs into charts and graphs.

  1. From my angle, it’s just the way Livejournal embeds media. Can’t embed a damn thing without it mucking everything up. If there is a tracker, I’m unaware of it.

    This is all very important stuff.

  2. I don’t know about any embeded media thing. I do use ljtoys though. I bumped into it a while back. I was attempting counter-stalker measures. I was doing the ol’ “Oh you see me?… No no no…. I SEE YOU…”

    it’s turned out to be kind of fun. I can see which ex’s, and ex’s of ex’s, are still keeping an eye on me. Hellz yeah…. I got those 1 pixel invisable tracker thingys all over my shiznet.
