wtf

([msg=70991]see wtf[/msg])

I'm working on a little assignment right now that is probably going to take a couple of days. That being said, I'm using BT for all my normal internet dealings at the moment.

Skipping straight to the point: Why is it when I go to facebook, before I even log in, is NoScript ticking for youtube?!?!

I don't use facebook but.. I've been getting annoyed with similar things. My flash is disabled at the moment due to some random vuln and theres a really large amount of sites that will complain about a missing plugin even though they don't have any visible flash. Seems like its just for persistent tracking cookies.. very rude.

I'm assuming that because Google owns YouTube, that it's just tracking cookies (like what Weekend said)
