ScribeFire goes to the dark side

ScribeFire, Zemanta, and a hidden tracking image at Simon Scullion

A comment on Brent’s blog explained how to deselect this “option” in the ScribeFire settings, under the ‘Publishing’ tab, look for ‘Automatically insert invisible tracking pixel for statistics gathering’.

So I noticed scribefire adding this shit to my posts recently and a little googling came up with this nice gents site explaining it and how to kill it. The offending gif it loads is "zemanta-pixie-img". Thats just not cool to me. If it plugs this code into all my posts there is nothing stopping them from changing that into a banner ad.

Bad Scribefire, very bad. Now go to your room.
