E privacy-breach-statistics-website

This package creates a privacy breach by fetching data from an external website in order to compile visitor statistics.

Please ask upstream to use the free software web analytics engine Piwik, which respects the "Do Not Track" browser option.

This tag covers the following websites: * cruel-carlota.pagodabox.com * linkexchange.com (defunct) * nedstatbasic.net * onestat.com * statcounter.com * sitemeter.com * webstats.motigo.com

Please replace any scripts, images, or other remote resources with non-remote resources. It is preferable to replace them with text and links but local copies of the remote resources are also acceptable as long as they don't also make calls to remote services. Please ensure that the remote resources are suitable for Debian main before making local copies of them.
