Secret traffic analysis hanging up I'bles Web pages? Answered

I am apparently unable to upload images to my library, and I'bles Web pages also show an indefinite "loading" condition. This has been going on for several days now. It seems like there are some stupid "hidden embedded images" from traffic analysis firms that are hanging things up. I currently see "Waiting for pixel.quantserve.com..." on one tab (this one!), "Transferring data from beacon.scorecardresearch.com..." on another tab (my image upload attempt), and the nefarious "Waiting for ad.doubleclick.net..." on two others.

We intentionally run the Quantcast tracking pixel. All other tracking pixels should be run from within iframes, and should not affect your load times. Is this still happening? Did you happen to notice what ad was running?

Hmmm...it's kind of weird. It's more than just Quantcast, and it doesn't seem to be fully consistent. I just got off my commute from SLAC to Davis (an hour just to get through Fairfield!) and the page reloads are not hanging right now. I saw Quantcast go by, and also one of the Beacons, but all four of my I'bles tabs completed loading (went from the spinny thing back to the little icon).

This what you mean? I guess with all the changes to the site, getting it to play nice with advertising monitoring tools is a pain.

I've been having the same problem intermittently.

Heh. When first I saw this title I thought you were putting the staff on front street there...
