We've been asked, very politely, to disable any ad blocking apps we might have on our particular browsers when we surf, read and discuss, or post here in Peppermint forum.  We've been asked to do this in order to help monetize this forum to help in the cost of keeping it going, and I for one see nothing wrong with honoring this request.

My concern is with what is tracking me after I leave this site.  My question is this:  Does Adsense, Double Click, and Google Analytics continue to follow us from Peppermint Nation after we leave this site.  My anti-tracking app is called DoNotTrack me from Abine, which is a Boston firm that I trust.

Does anyone know how far reaching these cookies go.  Now I have blocked ALL sites from tracking me -- except Peppermint, but I'm wondering after I let Adsense, Double Click, and Google Analytic onto Peppermint, do their tracking coolies follow my wife, or me, everywhere we go on the Internet after I've given these particular cookies permission to follow me here?   :-\

Thank you,

perknh

Whilst I'm only guessing here .. what would be the point in plugins like DoNotTrack and Ghostery having site whitelists if they follow you everywhere ?

As I said, that's pure assumption though  :-\

That's what I'm hoping too. Peppermint forum is as far as I want those tracking cookies to go.
