I've seen this type of stuff before myself. Webmasters will just rename their tracking / analytics scripts to something innocuous to avoid detection. Then a pointless cat and mouse game ensues at which point all scripts on that domain get blocked essentially breaking the site. Anyone remember PornHub or Yavli? IMO nothing new or nothing to worry about until someone starts using it on their site.

It's laughable, he thinks he can rename and getaway and also markets the article as his greatest magic trick ever :lol:
