    Why is Googleads / doubleclick trying to load my site meter data?

    My security intercepted this attempt:
    "Security Error: Content at may not load data from /popular.php?project_id=xxxxxxxx."

    Double click is trying to gather data on your surfers, from your site meter???

     Google Analytics is now letting users opt out of having your information, including your IP address, sent to Google’s central servers if you install a browser plug-in for IE 7 or 8, Google Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox. Google Analytics program manager Amy Chang described the new tool as a way to “provide even more choice and transparency for both website owners and users.”

    But do they then read any site meters you use??
