Just noticed and block them. What is this doing on etsy?

The pages would not refresh until I blocked the domain.

Weirdness.

it is a tracking cookie - there have been other threads. I blocked it too b/c it interfered with every single page. Very annoying & not the way to attract customers!

Thanks! I searched the forums for "scorecard" but nothing about it came up. Yes not user friendly at all. I hate spyware and marketing beacons.

It happened to me for the first time today too. I've seen the other threads, but never experienced it personally before today.

My first time seeing it today too when I was trying to refresh my latest treasury page www.etsy.com/treasury/4c34ab27b2d96d915cdc35cd/fork-it-over

I thought maybe someone embedded something in an image at first. Now I know better. Hmmm not liking this.

I wondered about this too and did a little Googling. Found these informative links:

I googled them too. I'm not cool with having to go to some website to opt myself out of anything. Blocking them permanently in my browser works even better. Firefox>Tools>Options>Accept cookies from sites>Exceptions>Type in b.scorecardresearch.com and hit the BLOCK button. I also added scorecardresearch.com to the block list as well.
No more hang ups.
:)
I have also blocked almost every invasive domain I come across.

Exactly - registering with them to opt out them just gives them your data! I blocked the site too.
