More Fascism From the White House
Turns out they're "spying" on people
who visit their website.The White House said Friday its Web tracking technology is consistent with federal rules because it only counts the number of visitors anonymously and doesn't record personal information.
The White House's site uses what's known as a Web bug — a tiny graphic image that's virtually invisible — to anonymously keep track of the number and time of visits. The bug is sent by a server maintained by an outside contractor, WebTrends Inc., and lets the traffic-analysis company know that another person has visited a specific page on the site.
And I'm "spying" on my visitors as well; if you click on the sitemeter icon at the bottom of the page, you'll see stats on who's visited here, how they came, and where they're from. Another non-story from the lamestream media.
