    Exclamation What is imrworldwide and why is it on every page of the board?

    I use firefox with adblock plus and the filterset.g updater, like everyone should, but earlier I hovered my mouse over the adblock icon and saw that something is being blocked on the board...this:
    http://secure-us.imrworldwide.com/v5.js

    All I found from google is a bunch of talk about it being spyware, like this:
    Unlike most conventional spyware, imrworldwide.com's Red Sheriff is loaded as a Java applet embedded in a Web page you visit. Once loaded, it sends information about your Internet usage (how long the page took to load, how long you stayed, etc.) to the parent company, supposedly bypassing firewalls, cookie blockers and the like. A number of Internet Service Providers have begun including Red Sheriff on their start pages, which are programmed to load every time the user logs on to the Internet.
    I ask because everything I saw about it from the googling session is from 2004. So I'm curious as to what it does now.
