ComScore and cluelessness

ComScore and cluelessness are interesting words to appear in the same article. The clueless people are those who pay any attention to any "study" done by ComScore. For that matter, anyone who doesn't block ComScore's domain at their perimeter firewall might also be considered clueless IMO. There are good reasons why I have blocked ComScore for a very long time.


ComScore...Just Say No!

This is OT but what is wrong with ComScore? You are saying I can't provide proper feedback to Microsoft as a Microsoft Panelist for many years when the study administrator chosen by Microsoft is ComScore? So, Microsoft is "clueless" to use them to commission feedback from us Microsoft panelists? I don't consider myself "clueless" either!

You are of course free to do as you wish. Personally, I would not hire someone with a known history of child abuse as a babysitter/nanny, nor someone with a known history of armed robbery as a security guard, but that is just me. Just because Microsoft says "trust us" doesn't mean that I would ever trust them.

Here is a search link of this site's Security forum for "ComScore MarketScore" (MarketScore is a ComScore alias): »/nsearch?q=Com···ds=%2C18

I know for a fact that they have in the past installed stealth proxy servers with the capability to intercept even SSL sessions on some of my customers' systems (because I had to find the infection and remove it).
