Although most users might never think about how websites measure their visitor-stats, we'd like to inform you that we've decided to drop Google Analytics from our site.
Actually we do enjoy many of the benefits Google's services offer, for example we still use Google's advertising service to run campaigns on our pages. But we also do think that the negative aspects of Google Analytics - especially for our users - outweigh the gain in usage information for us.
This decision does in no way harm the userexperience on our site. We are doing this for you, the users.
