Waiting for

by MarkFlax Forum moderator / March 15, 2012 7:30 AM PDT

I'm getting this all the time at the moment for all CNET forum pages;

"Waiting for"

Did they go down or something? It doesn't seem to affect the pages though.

Same Bull **** tracking or script or some other crap CNet has allowed to infiltrate the forums.

It just seems that almost every day something is trying to track or spy or whatever when we go to any web site. It would be nice if CNet led the charge and didn't accept advertising with tracking, or any invasiveness. CNet should be the leader in safe sites, leading the "Internet" in zero cookies or tracking sites.

On another note, I have installed Do Not Track+. As I type, in the top right corner of my browser page (FF-10), I have the indicator that 13 sites are tracking me, and DNT+ is blocking them. That's actually less than the CNet home page which has shown 17 trackers at times.

Sad that CNet is allowing this. But I guess it pays the bills. And please bear with me, I'm getting old and grouchy. You'll be there someday!! LOL Had too much to do around the house today so I couldn't ride my Goldwing.

Not seeing it anymore. As you guess, it may have went down... or something. Happy

Let me know if you are still seeing this.

It's back. They must be having ongoing problems.

But it doesn't last so long now.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
