Why does my college website have advertising trackers?

Today I installed Ghostery, which is supposed to flag and block advertising trackers, analytics, and beacons. When I visited my college's homepage I found that the site used the trackers adap.tv and Trade Desk and the beacon Rocket Fuel. This alarmed me. I checked a dozen other college websites. None had any ad trackers. So...why would my school have ad trackers on its website? Am I right to feel a bit creeped out by this?

50megs is runing my rep.

15 years ago, as a teenager, I wrote a fanfic about a sexual encounter and published it under my real name. One of the archives with this story has resurfaced on a new server, www.50megs.com, unbeknownst to the original owner of the archive. She's tried to have the page removed but to no avail; I've also been in touch with the new host of the site but have been told to just contact the owner - who no longer really owns it. What can I/we do to get this page down? [more inside]

Phone/TV/Internet service you could not refuse?

I work for a smallish Phone/TV/Internet company. We believe our network is really the best available, and our service is great, but customers are leaving us at a higher rate than we would like. (not "We're doomed!" levels, but still more than we would like). We are trying to think of "outside the box" ideas to retain and potentially add customers. [more inside]

Online work comment

A past employer started a blog. Several previous employees have started their own sub-blogs and one made a comment about me, using my full name. It wasn't necessarily a negative comment, but he was resentful of me supposedly forcing him to do something which was part of his job. I wasn't the person responsible for making him do anything, so the statement is not true. I'm puzzled because I had a very friendly, cordial relationship with this person, but whatever. I'm wondering how I should handle asking the company to remove the statement. I'm now working in a different field and I'm not sure how this statement about me will affect future customers. TIA.
