Bloggers… you should also pay attention.
Some of you have reported, when coming to this blog, the odd phenomenon of being redirected to some odd page elsewhere in these interwebs. It is a rare phenomenon, but troubling.
Some of you have reported, and I have seen it myself and have worked to extirpate it, seeing x.vindicosuite.com when pages load.
I think the problem has been tracked down.
For years I have used Sitemeter as a way to keep statistics here, for visits, page load, return visits, etc. It seems that Sitemeter itself is compromised. Lately I have been having some problems with Sitemeter. Some days stats are counted, other days they are not. The meter that is supposed to appear on this blog with visit counts works or doesn’t work. For days at a time I can’t access my account.
Sitemeter stinks right now. You can’t even send a support request.
So, alas, I removed Sitemeter for the time being. Let’s see what difference that makes.
I don’t believe that any readers here would have been compromised by the Sitemeter problem.
Finally, I refer the readership to my Litany For The Conversion Of Internet Thugs.
