Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

@kernpanik As a developer, I've pledged to stop using all google tools on all my clients' sites. True story: google now flags as malvertising sites who use their privacy-focused competitors (Matomo) for analytics.


Do you have any evidence for this can I look this up somewhere or do you even have links to this?
I can imagine this very well and is technically not a huge thing to implement this so, it's more about how Google abuses their power.

@kubikpixel @mkindred @kernpanik I think it will be hard to provide evidence for that. But I can understand them doing this. I don't have trust in them anymore.

@adnan360 @kubikpixel @kernpanik Indeed it's very difficult to get answers from G. Based on the circumstances, I know that they flagged my clients' sites for using Matomo Analytics. I can't prove motive.
