is using Matoma Tracking 20210304

I looked at the HTML source code of one of my posts today and discovered they are quietly using Matomo tracking in the <head> section of each page.

<!-- Piwik -->
    <script type="text/javascript">
      var _paq = _paq || [];
      /* tracker methods like "setCustomDimension" should be called before "trackPageView" */
      (function() {
        var u="//";
        _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']);
        _paq.push(['setSiteId', '6']);
        var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
        g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
    <!-- End Piwik Code -->

I couldn't find any reference to visitor tracking on their site.

The above JavaScript code snippet is enclosed in each page so cannot be blocked.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
