In Europe we are supposed to have laws protecting us...
The way GA is implemented on 99% of websites does not meet GDPR. Regulators need to get serious about enforcement.
@theprivacyfoundation "does not matter to me" as I use uMatrix which blocks it :)
(Privacy Badger or uBlock Origin may do that as well)

I think avoiding g analytics on your personal site or project is an overall good thing. However, I don't think privacy advocacy solely depends on becoming an outsider.
I would consider OK if a privacy org uses, for example, facebook or any other "privacy-problematic" sites or services, including analytics.
We're trying to make this mindset mainstream, and that can't happen if all advocacy happens on secret chats on the TOR network. It's not hypocrisy, it's compromise.
NoScript and uBlock Origin, cookie badger, canvas blocker and chameleon are my allies..
if the website stops working under their fire, i stop using the website.. otherwise it just reduces credibility, in the amount proportional to the openness of the website philosophy...
