I couldn't find the earlier post on this.

This article is written in layman's terms by an authoritative source.  It's better than the earlier articles for forwarding to those who *might* be starting to get a clue about tracking and security, though I'm still pretty close to batting zero on my efforts.

I remember the original, but can't find it either. Maybe we both thought about posting it here, but didn't?
