Tribal Fusion?

My puter picked up and blocked this cookie. I see LS is on their list of websites...... whats up with this? with this tribalfusion.com then I see spyware removal for that site..... makes me think there is something going on here????????

I got a summary report that info is collected on individual users and identifies them. Having a good spyware program I clean up the puter but I do end up with a couple of hanger on adware or spyware on occassion.

Is this site legit/(LS does use it?) for the site or is someone trying to crawl up the backside of my computer through LS?

Probably is, but I think it's harmless.

The clown would know about this, so let's wait for his answer now that he's kind of back!

It's an ad tracking cookie.. it does look at data streamed from your browser such as ip addy and browser version but that is about it.

They also bring targeted ads to your browser.. meaning if your are in L.A. then they show you an ad for a local place in L.A. or an ad maybe saying something like " Meet singles in L.A "

I think they harmless as all cookies track data today.

I think they get hit by the adware programs because of the targeted ad side of the cookie..
In reality they are tracking your global postion based on your ip addy

It is amazing how easy it is to track someone thru their ip addy..
With most ip's you can get within a few miles of someones actual position if not right on top of them.

They call it geolocation tracking

Here is a link that explains it a little

I knew he'd make his way here.

Yup, Moose, he's the clown around here.

So they want to reposition or see my 'globes'? Are you saying they are watching me get out of the shower too? Dag I hope they did not see me pick my nose too!!!

I saw sites saying this cookie was a problem...... perhaps since I have third party cookie blocks it may help as well.
