Just noticed this at Statcounter.com
"A few months back, StatCounter was approached by an advertiser, offered lots of $$$, and asked to include a spyware cookie on all of our member sites…we refused on the spot.
You install StatCounter to track visitors to your site NOT to open yourself and your visitors up to being spied upon by phantom advertising corporations.
It appears, however, that other players in the world of webstats were happy to take up this offer… "
They're not naming any names, who made the offer or who's taken it up;
apart from somone in the comments

I just read all 868 Responses to “StatCounter Says NO!” on that blog and now I know that I have to remove sitemeter from all my sites, no wonder I was having problems with slow loading sites since about last month.

You can believe me because we had sitemeter on three sites and it was emitting the dg.specificclick.net/jensondemo cookie on all those sites. We had to get someone from our host to remove sitemeter from all pages. That counter continues to emit that spy cookie and people do not like to read a page through a spyware iframe.

Raakesh, why should we believe you?
1. You put a signature URL drop in your post by hand which is against the rules.
2. Both those sites you dropped links to are owned by the same outfit.
3. You link directly to the download on the third site that you dropped the URL for.
4. All of those sites ping to the same c-block, the difference being 1 digit at the end.
5. Looks like they're all yours
Why didn't you tell us they're all your websites, instead of posting like it's a 3rd party recommendation?
All that in your very first post. Why should we trust you?
