Didn't mean to start a blue. It's not just security. It's being 
tracked. And not knowing which ones track you means that to be 
defensive and *not* be fooled by 3rd party script sources, I have 
them turned off. I don't allow popups, either. I block adverts, too. 
And those are on by default. Viruses can come in by default settings. 
Should we not use av or firewalls? Of course those are rhetorical 
questions. But the logic is the same.

I just asked which script was required to be allowed in order to see 
the application that was used. Does anyone know?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
