this is not tracking, those are facebook like buttons?!?
Seriously, (I havent realized before) these embedded images from gravatar.com
*are* webbugs, allowing automation.com to track BTS usage.
I too find this totally unacceptable default (to have this enabled by default
with just the not even yet implemented option to opt-out).
Before filing a serious bug about this, I'd like to get some feedback what
other think. (Too tired after traveling yesterday..)
And, I feel really sorry for Don that this feature which looked really nice at
first sight has turned out to be so, aeh, difficult.
