Re: Finger Printing and The DMCA
Replying to my own post... I'm so fed up...
I happen to know a web proxy administrator, and I happen to know that utm parameters and Google headers can be stripped at the proxy (not to mention just blocking Google tracking URL's outright). Imagine doing that for a really large organization. Might get a few user complaints because it broke Google, but... Hey, use DuckDuckGo (etc., yes, there are other search engines that respect privacy).
Yet, the thing that really ticks me off is that utm parameters are added by a massive number web sites. That's right, the majority of the Internet is conspiring with Google for SEO purposes... just like every business seems obligated to have a FaceBook page.
Now to see if I can get this proposed as a security control, though it's probably a pipe dream.
Oh, there's where the rest of that rant went. I'm so happy to see the rage return.
