Users can turn off the Google Analytics cookies, but otherwise, they
get an tracking cookie. same with AdWords, Facebook, and many other

I don't care to speculate on publisher decision-making processes, but
Google's Privacy Policy is pretty clear about the use of cookies.

Some questions, if I may.  Are you suggesting that the use of Google
Analytics necessarily results in cookies being placed on users'
machines (as I suspect)?  Is this being done without the knowledge of
the publishers--is it, in other words, an aspect of Google Analytics
and not a deliberate decision of the publishers?
