Why is WordPress moving my stats to their page?

Friends,

This is one of many little ‘new features’ WordPress is forcing on their user community without adequate bug testing.

And like all bugs, this undocumented ‘new feature’ does not work properly. I won’t go into all of those details.

But, I will go into their motive.

MONEY.

Advertising revenue is based on total hits. So by moving some of my page views to their side of the equation, they can leverage more advertising revenue.

And I do not mind their removing my checking my stats from my page views, because that will give me a better view of my stats. I have thought about purchasing an analytics package, because their statistics are really not good.

BUT, why break something?

Will they really get that much more money?

What do you think? Will it be worth it for them?

Will we ever get past all the hour glasses we are getting now?
