"Techdirt Is Now Entirely Without Any Google Ads Or Tracking Code"
Nice move! 👏
@plausible A nice move, but they're still way off the mark. As per my comment on HN:
Two steps in the right direction, but this one page still sends requests to soundcloud.com, rawgit.com, cloudflare.com, googleapis.com, amazonaws.com, fontawesome.com, sndcdn.com, stackcommerce.com, stackassets.com, stacksocial.com, and gravatar.com.
Their "self-hosted" Plausible content is pulled from tics.techdirect.com, which resolves to 220.127.116.11 and shares a reverse DNS with custom.plausible.io. Can't tell who runs the web server on the other end of this, so it may well be self-hosted.
The site also dropped a first-party one-year cookie, and let a third party drop a week-long cookie.
My browser is set to send Do Not Track requests, so my explicit wishes are still being flagrantly ignored.
@proactiveservices they seem to talk about removing google ads/analytics which they seem to have done rather than removing all the third party calls they may have
