Default revsci.net

Was reading through nokia's post last night in malware section. Noticed his post with the sreenshot showing revsci.net. Admin did not seem to know what this was. I have been monitoring cookies etc this morning, cleaned all first, found revsic.net is a cookie recieved about 5 seconds after recieving the Major Geeks cookie. Did not or do not recieve this cookie visiting any other sites. I don't think this is a problem as everything is clean and running fine. No spyware no viruses trojans keyloggers etc, no slow down of page loading, nothing. Just curious if you found out what this is. You can move this post if required sorry if in wrong place, but doesn't seem to be a malware problem.

It's a cookie from an ad/counter thingy we were trying out --- It's suppose to try and figure out which ads someone likes best and display it. That sort of thing.

I discussed it with Jim today and we may end up removing it all the same.
