I really hate pop-ups, JavaScript and the whole "best viewed with" browser
bias. I hand-code my own pages to be platform, browser and language
agnostic -- 100% pure W3C-approved HTML -- for that reason, as well to
ensure that everyone can access my Web content, no matter what they're running.

But I especially hate tracking software that records my every mouse click
without my knowledge and consent. If you're going to continue to use eXTReMe
Tracking on your site, you should have a Privacy Statement up-front to tell
us what you're doing, why you're doing it and to what purposes the
collected data are to be used.

Fro those of you who didn't spot it, here's what's embedded in the GMS page:

I note that, of your last 20 visitors, only two were running Netscape
(version 4), both under Windows 98. Two more used AOL, one running AOL3
under Windows 3.1 and the other AOL4 under Windows 98. Two more were
separate visits from the same location, running Internet Explorer 5 under
Windows NT.

And so on. It's all there, if you know where and how to look.

"Shameless webpage" indeed...!
