You failed to note that the Pioneer Press' web site, twincities.com , is one of the abusive sites listed in the study. Congratulations on belonging in the same league as youporn. Also, in posting this comment, I had to allow 16 third-party scripts to run - all hosted by twincities.com . For a nice newspaper in a nice city, you sure run a dirty web site.
